Alzheimer’s disease, named after the doctor who first described it (Alois Alzheimer), is a physical disease that affects the brain.
During the course of the disease, proteins build up in the brain to form structures called ‘plaques’ and ‘tangles’. This leads to the loss of connections between nerve cells, and eventually to the death of nerve cells and loss of brain tissue.
People with Alzheimer’s also have a shortage of some important chemicals in their brain. These chemical messengers help to transmit signals around the brain. When there is a shortage of them, the signals are not transmitted as effectively.
Most common symptoms of Alzheimer disease are:
– Changes in Memory: if a person repeatedly wants same information, or forget usual things or important event, is advisable to consult a doctor.
– Difficulty with problem solving or planning: one can experience difficulty with solving even simple problems, or planning events or similar thing.
-Difficulties with executing daily activities: a person who suffer from this disease cannot execute even a simple thing like going a store.
-Loss of orientation: another strong indicator of this condition. People may experience disorientation, thus cannot remember or be aware where they are.
– Difficulty in reading and understanding visual images: people Alzheimer’s usually have vision problems or difficulty reading or calculating distances, which in the long run would prevent them from driving their own vehicle.
-Language issues: sudden stopping in the middle of a conversation without knowing how to continue or repeat sentences is a sign of Alzheimer’s.
-Objects did not move by themselves: A person suffering from the disease usually moves objects from their usual place or have difficulty finding them even if they are very visible.
