ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT AND PREVENTION OF ALZHEIMER
What are the causes or risk factors of Alzheimer's disease?
Although a great deal of research has been done and is currently being done on the possible causes of Alzheimer's disease, experts are still not sure why the brain
Cells deteriorate. However, there are several factors that are known to be related to an increased risk of developing the disease. These include:
Age: After age 65 the risk of developing Alzheimer's doubles every five years. Although Alzheimer's is predominantly a disease that develops
During old age, some younger people may also develop the condition.
Family history Genetic factors: People who have a close family member who developed Alzheimer's have a slightly higher risk of developing it on their own,
Only a slightly higher risk, not a significantly higher risk. Only about 7% of all cases are associated with genes that cause inherited early onset
Family form of the disease. Among those who do inherit the condition, it can begin at an earlier age.
Down syndrome: People with Down syndrome have an additional copy of chromosome 21, which contains a protein that exists in the brains of people with Down syndrome.
Alzheimer's disease. Because people with Down syndrome have more of this protein than others, their risk of developing the disease is greater.
Cervical whiplash and head injuries: Some studies have identified a link between whiplash and head injuries and an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's.
Aluminum (UK / Ireland / Australia: Aluminum): The link here is a theory most scientists have dismissed. Aluminum exists in the plaques and entanglements in the
Brains of Alzheimer's patients. Some have suggested that the absorption of aluminum by humans could increase the risk.
A higher percentage of women develop Alzheimer's than men.
A study of more than 37,000 patients showed a strong link between atrial fibrillation and the development of Alzheimer's disease.
Risk factors for heart disease: People with risk factors for heart disease – high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol and poorly controlled control
Diabetes – also have an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's. If your high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes, poorly controlled, is a
Lifestyle outcome, it is called a lifestyle factor. Eat a well-balanced diet, get plenty of exercise, aim at your ideal body weight, and sleep
Between 7 to 8 hours each night will probably eliminate these factors.
