New Alzheimer’s disease treatment and prevention opportunity has been recently discovered. In their study on donated brains, the researchers uncovered a correlation between the prevalence of aquaporin-4 (a membrane protein in the brain) among seniors who didn’t have Alzheimer’s disease,… Read More
In Alzheimer’s disease, low bone density may indicate brain degeneration. Reduced bone mineral density is associated with a higher risk of bone fracture, which can lead to a poorer quality of life and increased mortality among Alzheimer’s disease patients.

Amyloids triggering Alzheimer’s disease can also raise the risk of heart failure risk. Amyloid plaques are indicative of Alzheimer’s disease, but similar deposits can also appear on the heart, too.
Senior researcher Dr. Federica del Monte explained, “We found… Read More
November is Alzheimer’s disease month, so we present our top articles discussing early signs of Alzheimer’s, hallucinations, sleep disorders, eating disorders, and agitation and anxiety, along with other aspects related to Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is a growing problem around… Read More
High blood pressure may impair cognitive function, increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. There is consistent evidence that chronic high blood pressure can impair cognitive function, affecting memory, thinking abilities, speed of processing, and executive function.
According to the expert… Read More
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of vision loss among the elderly, is also linked to Alzheimer’s disease. A study has revealed that the proteins associated with Alzheimer’s disease can accumulate in the retina and damage it. The researchers… Read More
Agitation and anxiety in Alzheimer’s disease are just some of the possible behavioral symptoms a patient may experience. These symptoms often develop in the later stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Agitation can present itself as verbal or physical outburst, general emotional… Read More
Mild cognitive impairment in older adults may improve with computer-based brain training before dementia diagnosis. The researchers reviewed over 20 years of research and found that brain training could improve cognitive function, memory, learning, and attention, along with psychosocial functioning… Read More
In Alzheimer’s disease, cognitive impairment may be improved with probiotics. Probiotics have been shown to help aid in other conditions such as IBS, IBD, allergies, colds, and many more. Although researchers have long hypothesized that probiotics may have a positive… Read More
Delusions and hallucinations are common in the latter stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Delusions are false beliefs, and even though you may provide the patient with evidence to suggest otherwise, they still hold on to their original belief. Delusions can… Read More
Heart medications may help treat Alzheimer’s disease by reducing plaque buildup in the brain’s blood vessels. Researcher Prof. Magnus Grenegård explained, “You should be careful not to draw any major conclusions from experimental studies, but we have certainly identified… Read More
Lewy body dementia can be distinguished from Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease by comparing clinical profiles. The study compared 21 patients with Lewy body dementia to 21 Alzheimer’s patients and 21 Parkinson’s disease patients. Patients were matched based on age,… Read More
