What is Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative brain disease. It is also the most common cause of dementia. Eventually neurons are damaged to the point where basic motor functions and memory become difficult maybe even impossible. The cause of this neurological damage is often attributed to an accumulation of plaque or protein based fragments surrounding neurons and twisted inside. These protein deposits are also closely linked with Parkinson's disease as well. In fact, 50 - 80% of those with Parkinson's develop some type of dementia.
Because of the nature of this disease, it is absolutely necessary to diagnose as early as possible. Though incurable, it is possible to improve the quality of life with a proper treatment.
