Alzheimer Disease: Types, Warning Signs, Risk Factors, and more

November 7, 2022

Alzheimer disease is a progressive neurological condition that causes a gradual decline in behavioral and cognitive abilities such as memory, interpretation, language, concentration, and decisions. Alzheimer is the most prevalent dementia, contributing to two-thirds of dementia cases in persons 65 and older. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Only symptomatic treatment is available. However, a recent development has shown progress in slowing cognitive decline. The global incidence of dementia is estimated at 24 million individuals, which is expected to double by 2060. Alzheimer disease is predicted to cost $172 billion in health care costs in the United States annually. After the age of 65, the risk of Alzheimer increases every five years.
