Alzheimer Disease Treatment

Alzheimer is a progressive neurogenerative disease, and it worsens over time. It is a pervasive problem which does not have a standard solution. People find difficulty in retaining their memory, and they face problem in doing basic tasks as a result of brain deterioration. In this case, memory loss becomes dangerous when people start forgetting things on a daily basis. Alzheimer is not restricted to the aged people; instead, it can happen to any person irrespective of their age.

A study showed that Alzheimer is the sixth leading cause of people’s death in the USA.

Causes

Researchers trust that Alzheimer is caused by a mix of hereditary, way of life and natural factors that influence the brain degeneration after some time.

In spite of the fact that the reasons for Alzheimer's aren't yet completely comprehended, its impact on the brain tissue is clear. Alzheimer harms and kills brain tissues. A cerebrum affected by Alzheimer has lesser cells and even lesser neural network among alive cells.

Symptoms

  • The most basic and the earliest sign is inability to retain the newly grasped information.
  • The failing of the brain cells causes confusion and inability to understand the simplest things.
  • Memory loss is a standard symptom of the onset of this disease.
  • Sudden changes in mood, disorientation and behavioral changes like having confusion about day and date, time and place.
  • After some time people start even forgetting their friends, family members.
  • People start facing difficulty in reading, speaking and swallowing.

Diagnosis

  • Neurological Exam
    It is performed to check the physical abilities of a person. Here, the doctor tests the eyesight, hearing power, balancing, muscle tone and strength.
  • Lab Test
    Blood tests and other tests are examined to know that if there are any deficiencies.
  • Brain Imaging/Neuroimaging
    Doctors use specific techniques to examine the changes occurring in the brain, to check the abnormalities of the brain.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
    By using radio waves, a magnetic field is created which shows the detailed images of the brain.
  • Computerised Tomography (CT)
    A CT scan shows the cross-sectional images of the brain. Primarily it detects the strokes, tumours in the brain.
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
    To check which parts of your brain are not functioning well, PET is used. Doctors inject in a vein a low-level radioactive tracer. However, this technique is still under clinical trials.

Treatment

There are certain drugs which are currently helping in the treatment of Alzheimer for the time being.

  • Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor (AChEI)
    These drugs are used in the improvement of neuropsychiatric symptoms. These drugs uplift the cell to cell communication which is harmed by the disease. These rugs are very helpful to recover from depression, anxiety and brain related issues.
    AChEI can cause certain side-effects: disturbance in sleep, eating disorder. There are some severe side effects, like the slow rate of heartbeat and blockage in the heart.
  • Memantine
    Memantine is utilized to treat moderate to severe confusion. It doesn't fix Alzheimer's infection but might enhance memory, mindfulness, and the capacity to perform everyday tasks. This drug slows the progression of the Alzheimer disease, but it also comes with some side effects like a persistent headache, constipation, etc.

Complications

As the Alzheimer’s disease advances, a person can encounter health and lifestyle issues, including:

  • Depression
  • Unreported pain, ailment, or medication symptoms because of the powerlessness to communicate
  • Falls can happen as a result of loss of control of balance
  • Pneumonia or different diseases may strike
  • Facing malnutrition and dehydration
  • Inability to do everyday tasks

Prognosis

A remedy for alzheimer’s disease isn't accessible, yet treatment can enhance intellectual capacity. The objective of treatment is to moderate the ailment and help oversee the memory loss, confusion and other complications. A specialist may propose way of life changes, for example, working out, getting a pet, and also encourage recommended medicines to moderate the level of sickness.

With training, treatment, and support, patient can live a functional life.
