What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder. Its symptoms include deteriorated memory, problems with comprehension, a condition known as brain fog. It is common in elderly people.

Can brain pills cure Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is not currently medically curable. However, it can be managed to avoid total brain failure. Below are the curative approaches used for Alzheimer’s disease:

  • Behavioral management – This is a therapeutic approach that aims to train patients to avoid distractions and keep clear communication.
  • Management of symptoms – Again, this therapeutic approach aims to mitigate the extent of the potential damage arising from Alzheimer’s disease symptoms.
  • Company and socialization - Alzheimer’s disease worsens the more a patient spends more time in isolation. By showing support and companionship to the patients, the disease can be managed from spreading to advanced stages.
  • Prescription medications – There have been attempts to develop a prescription curative agent for Alzheimer’s disease. So far, the efforts have managed to come up with various medications which include acetylcholine and galantamine. None of these medics will completely cure Alzheimer’s disease but can greatly help in managing the disease. It is important to note that there are many other prescription medics used for Alzheimer’s disease treatment. The best one to consider should be advised for by a doctor.
  • Depression medics – In most cases, Alzheimer’s disease patients will have to deal with depression and stress. It is for this reason that stress and depression medications may be prescribed for the patients.
  • Brain pills – Some smart drugs especially nootropics are known to aid in brain development as well as protection from brain degradation. Such pills can be used to counter the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

 

Will I get Alzheimer’s disease if my parents have it?

Alzheimer’s disease is partly a genetic disease. However, less than a quarter of all reported cases are genetic. Age is the leading cause of the disease. This is in cases that an individual is leading a poor lifestyle. For example, excessive buildup of cholesterol will encourage the onset of the disease. The same goes for poor habits like smoking and rarely going for exercises. Dietary inclusions are also a key determinant on how fast Alzheimer’s disease will spread. It is advised that patients lean more towards food that promote brain growth. Such foods include green vegetables (Vitamin B), omega oils and nuts.   The fact that Alzheimer’s disease is progressive makes it important to see a doctor the earliest possible. In any case that you keep experiencing frequent brain fogs, a visit to a doctor is called for.
