What is Alzheimer?

Alzheimer's disease is a disease that affects the brain, leads to loss of memory and low concentration, and may develop the disease, and changes in the personality of the patient to become nervous or insane for a temporary period, and no treatment has been found so far, but available medicines has slowed down the process of its development.

Causes of Alzheimer’s Disease:

Many people are affected by the disease, especially in the United States, where the number of people has increased significantly in a short period, and is expected to increase this number in the coming years, due to many reasons, including the following:

  • It is certain that the cause of the disease is due to the exposure of the right person to a very powerful accident, and focused on the head area, leading to a severe defect of the brain cells, and the loss of information that holds, that is, the memory is lost permanently.
  • It is said that most predictable cause is age, which is one of the most encouraging factors in the emergence of the disease.
  • It is said that most people with this disease have a lot of gold, so that the atoms within the gold are transferred from the skin to the blood, called the physicists, especially (gold migration).
  • People with heart disease may be got Alzheimer.
  • The cause may be due to the process of decomposition, and death of brain cells that are specialized in the preservation and retrieval of information.
  • If a person suffers from simple cognitive deficits, he may develop Alzheimer's.
  • It has recently been discovered that it can be caused by anthrax proteins accumulated within nerve cells that cause disruption and delay of nerve currents, destroying the pathways within the brain.
  • Non-compliance with vaccinations to prevent this disease.
  • People who have had parents or grandparents with this disease are more likely to have the disease than natural persons, that is, inherited, that is genetic and non-genetic.
  • People suffering from consecutive failure in their lives, anxiety, excessive fear, depression, and bad mental states, are more exposed to the disease.
  • A person may become infected with this disease because of the disease that affects the blood vessels that are found inside the brain.
  • Neglect in the use of intelligence games since childhood may cause the possibility of Alzheimer.

Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease:

In the first phase of Alzheimer's, there is a slight loss of memory and confusion, ultimately resulting in irreversible damage to the patient's mental abilities, as well as his ability to remember, to think logically, to learn and to imagine.

 Memory Loss:

Everyone has difficulty remembering some things. It's normal to forget where to put your car keys, or the names of people you rarely meet. But in Alzheimer's patients with memory problems are exacerbated much.

People with Alzheimer's have the following problems:

  • Repeat the same sentences and words.
  • Forget conversations or appointments.
  • They put things in the wrong place, but in places that are completely illogical.
  • They forget the names of their family members and the names of objects they use daily.
  • Problems in abstract thinking.
  • At the beginning of the disease, Alzheimer's patients may not be able to maintain their financial balance, a problem that may develop into difficulty in knowing, identifying and handling numbers.
  • Difficult to find the right or proper word.
  • The ability to find the right word, or even to follow a conversation, sometimes becomes a serious, even challenging, task for Alzheimer's patients. In the end, their ability to read and write is also impaired.
  • Problems in the ability to locate.
  • Loss of sense of time, even Alzheimer's patients may be "lost" in a familiar area.
  • Loss of ability to govern and take position.
  • Difficulties in solving daily problems, such as knowing how to behave in the event of burning food in the oven. With time it becomes more difficult and eventually becomes impossible. Alzheimer's disease is characterized by extreme difficulty in the implementation of tasks and actions that require planning, decision-making and the ability to govern and take a position.
  • Difficulty in carrying out routine and familiar tasks.
  • It is very difficult to carry out routine tasks involving a few stages or steps, such as cooking. People with Alzheimer's disease in its advanced stages forget how to do the most basic things.

Alzheimer's patients have personality changes such as:

  • Mood Trimmer.
  • Lack of trust in others.
  • Increasing intransigence.
  • Social Inclusion.
  • Depression.
  • Fear from anything.
  • Aggressive.

Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease:

There is no treatment for this disease, and the treatment given to the patient does not reduce the progress of the disease and its seriousness, only reduces the deterioration of the symptoms of dementia temporarily, so it is important to prevent it, to delay the occurrence of the disease, and prevent it, and drugs used to treat symptoms of cognitive loss of memory, (Cholinesterase inhibitors and Memantine). As the disease progresses, the brain cells die, and the connections between these cells are lost, so some medicines cannot stop this damage in perception, but they reduce the symptoms resulting from it for a short period of time, some doctors describe these two drugs together, others describe vitamin E for the treatment of cognitive changes.
