Alzheimer’s disease affects over 5 million people in the United States every year, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. It makes everyone we know at risk of developing it, including ourselves.
However, many people believe that it is a disease that affects only people who are 65 years or older, but there is a chance a person would develop it in their 40s or 50s.
Alzheimer’s treatment doesn’t get rid of the disease, but it only reduces its symptoms. This is why it is extremely important to pay attention to the early symptoms because, according to recent studies, treating the Alzheimer’s early increases your chances of not losing their memory completely and not very early.
So whether it is you or someone you know, pay attention to all of the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease in order to prevent it from developing more. Make sure to always talk to your doctor whenever you spot one or multiple symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, even if they don’t seem like an issue.
