Research is starting to show that Alzheimer’s may be prevented with the right lifestyle choices. The good news is, the same strategies that keep diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers at bay may also play a role in reducing your risk for Alzheimer’s.
Advances in the treatment of Alzheimer’s could not be achieved without the help of investigators. But the research wouldn’t be possible without the participation of important people: the patients.
Home Instead Senior Care®, the world’s leading provider of home care services for seniors, today announced new survey results revealing that Americans fear developing Alzheimer’s disease more than any other major life-threatening disease, including cancer, stroke, heart disease and diabetes.
Scientists studying Alzheimer’s disease are increasingly finding clues that the brain begins to deteriorate years before a person shows symptoms of dementia.
Now, research on a large extended family of 5,000 people in Colombia with a genetically driven form of Alzheimer’s has found evidence that the precursors of the disease begin even earlier than previously thought and that this early brain deterioration occurs in more ways than has been documented before.
