As per CROSSE Wis, a new description of the Alzheimer’s disease could be more supportive in detecting this disease at the earlier stage. Well, Alzheimer disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that starts up slowly and gets worse over the period. The most common age for this diseases is 65 and above where people find it difficult in remembering any recent activities that have been leading to a serious issue. However, there are certain drugs available in the market to cure dementia but would be effective only when it is consumed in the earlier stage of Alzheimer.
However, physicians have found out that as per the symptoms it’s easy to diagnose this disease such as changes in the brain, rather than memory loss. Presently, the healthcare detects the disease by just observing the personal behavior, his medical background and through certain lab work and scanning.
Moreover, now in recent findings, it has been noticed that through scanning, the Alzheimer disease could be recognized as when it was earlier being detected 15 to 20 years before, the symptoms could actually have been noticed. While the time person begins to detect the symptoms or signs of Alzheimer’s disease, they actually carry a higher amount of burden towards this disease that already exists and therefore it’s too late to go for any medication, as per Dr. Thomas loepfe, chair of the Geriatrics Department at Mayo Clinic Health System.
According to the research, around one-third of the individuals above 70, wherein there are no symptoms of thinking issues but actually consist of brain signs that depict as the Alzheimer disease, as published in the Alzheimer’s and Dementia, the Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.
However, using brain scan and whatever the tests included is considered to be too early in the routine health care, this might lead to adverse effect and the same has not been validated for that particular purpose. Also, the expenditure included in the advanced scanning stands to be very expensive.
