What is Alzheimer's disease?
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a slowly progressive disease of the brain that is characterized by impairment of memory and eventually by disturbances in reasoning, planning, language, and perception. Many scientists believe that Alzheimer's disease results from an increase in the production or accumulation of a specific protein (beta-amyloid protein) in the brain that leads to nerve cell death.
Some characteristic symptoms of Alzheimer Disease include:
problems with performing familiar tasks
difficulty writing or speaking
loss of orientation to time and place
losing or misplacing items
mood or behavior changes
loss of interest in daily activities, and poor judgment.
