How risky is the contracting of Alzheimer's Disease?

Postby Healthgeenie » Sat Jun 08, 2013 4:08 pm

The Alzheimer's disease symptoms are frequently confused with the changes that occur in usual aging, so it is significant to know the difference. I have read in ‘nun study treatment’ in google recently that we must determine about Alzheimer's disease because this disease is actually not an ordinary part of aging. When the ApoE4 gene occurs, the danger will continue, and due to this, the risk of contracting Alzheimer's may enhance to 50%. Some symptoms are can be observed in older people or even in ourselves. So it should be measured as a serious condition especially if it is hereditary. :roll:

Alzheimer’s is such a critical condition to have. Having a family that had an Alzheimer’s can cause you to have one too. So we must go to our doctors and ask for a check up to know if we are going to have this one. Me myself is experiencing of forgetting things. And it’s not just that simple of forgetfulness. So I think I would have a meeting with my doctor. I had also read at ‘nun study treatment’ that having a depression might cause you to have an Alzheimer’s. I think preventing is better than cure, especially that Alzheimer’s doesn’t have a treatment yet, they are still discovering it. So we must know what are the signs and symptoms of it, so we could slow down the process of forming Alzheimer’s. :)

It is very difficult to convince a family member of mine to be fitted for a much needed hearing aid, let alone an assessment to determine what's really going on with them mentally.. Some days this family member's mind is sharp as a tack. Other times the mind is forgetful and dull as a butter knife. Right now our family is only allowed to observe from a distance and not touch.
I may not know my way right now, but I will know real soon..
