ALZHEIMER

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. AD is also called as Senile Dementia of the Alzheimer Type (SDAT) or simply Alzheimer's. This is an incurable degenerative and terminal disease

Causes:

There are three major hypothesis analyzed by many scientists. The first and the oldest of the thesis is the most currently available drug therapies are based, is the cholinergic hypothesis, which proposes that AD is caused by reduced synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. The cholinergic hypothesis has not maintained widespread support, largely because medications intended to treat acetylcholine deficiency have not been very effective. It is a compelling theory because the gene for the amyloidal beta precursor protein (APP) is located on chromosome 21, and people with trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) who thus have an extra gene copy almost universally exhibit AD by 40 years of age

Symptoms:
Some common early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease include confusion, disturbances in short-term memory, problems with attention and spatial orientation, changes in personality, language difficulties and unexplained mood swings. These symptoms will likely vary in severity and chronology, overlap and fluctuate; the overall progress of the disease is fairly predictable. Alzheimer’s generally leads to impairment of cognitive and memory function, communication problems, personality changes, erratic behavior, dependence and loss of control over bodily functions. Alzheimer’s disease doesn’t affect every person the same way, but symptoms normally progress in these stages.



Stage 1 (Mild):

This stage can last from 2 to 4 years. Early in the illness, those with Alzheimer’s tend to be less energetic and spontaneous. They exhibit minor memory loss and mood swings, and is slow to learn and react. Individuals become confused, have difficulty organizing and planning, get lost easily and exercise poor judgment. They may have difficulty performing routine tasks, and have trouble communicating and understanding written material. If the person is employed, memory loss may begin to affect job performance. They can become angry and frustrated.

Stage 2 (Moderate):
This is generally the longest stage and can last 2 to 10 years. In this stage, the person with Alzheimer’s is clearly becoming disabled. Individuals can still perform simple tasks independently, but may need assistance with more complicated activities. Memories of the distant past may be confused with the present, and affect the person’s ability to comprehend the current situation, date and time. They may experience sleep disturbances and have more trouble eating, grooming and dressing.

Stage 3 (Severe):
This stage may last 1 to 3 years. Their memory worsens and may become almost non-existent. They will sleep often and grunting or moaning can be common. In a weakened physical state, patients may become vulnerable to other illnesses, skin infections, and respiratory problems, particularly when they are unable to move around.

 

 

Treatment:
There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease and no proven treatment to slow its progression; there are a number of medicines available that may help improve the mental function of people with Alzheimer's disease.

Home Remedies and Natural Treatment:
Ginkgo biloba with anti oxidant and anti fungal properties is best to cure neurological disorders. Exercise, good nutrition, activities, and social interaction are important. A calm, structured environment also may help the person with Alzheimer's disease to continue functioning as long as possible. High fat and calorie intake must be avoided.

Mayo Clinic is the best center for the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease.
