Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia.

Today, as research on Alzheimer's disease progresses, scientists are describing other abnormal anatomical and chemical changes associated with the disease. These include nerve cell degeneration in the brain's nucleus and reduced levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brains of Alzheimer's disease victims (Alzheimer's Disease). However, from a practical standpoint, conducting an autopsy of an individual to make a definitive diagnosis is rather ineffective. Newer diagnostic techniques will be discussed in a later section of this paper.

Because there is not yet a cure for this disease and the percent of the population being diagnosed keeps rapidly rising, more time and money needs to go towards Alzheimer’s research....

It is first described by the German neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer (1864-1915) in 1905.

Alois Alzheimer’s first discovered the disease in 1906.

With that comes the next deciding factor of having Alzheimer's, genetics.

It will explore its etiology, pathophysiology, risk factors and their modification, diagnostic and medical treatment including pharmacology, health education, and nursing care of Alzheimer’s disease based off nursing literature.

(Beattie, 2002) Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of the aging process in humans, but rather found in a group of diseases that affect the brain leading to a decline in mental and physical control....

Living with Alzheimer’s disease can be saddening for both the sufferer and the family....

Low-pressure-hydrocephalus or ‘water on the brain' is one illness of the primary differentiable type. If this disease can be properly diagnosed, it can be treated and, in most cases, the symptoms are relieved or greatly improved. It is caused by an overabundance of cerebral fluid on the brain, which must be relieved surgically. Huntington's disease is another differentiable type, but it, as of yet, has no cure. Patients who have this disease exhibit involuntary writhing movements that are distinctive to this disorder. Finally, viral diseases, Parkinson's disease and Wilson's disease, among others, can also be causes of primary dementia similar to that seen in Alzheimer's patients (Ibid).

These are classic early stage symptoms of Alzheimer's.


To best cope with Alzheimer’s we must better understand the disease.

For example, Pick's disease is so similar Alzheimer's that distinguishing the two in living patients is almost impossible. Like Alzheimer's patients, those with Pick's disease show signs of neurofilament masses and disarray in the neurotubules. However, there is a syndrome that is seen more in Pick's patients than any other patient, which can aid in the diagnosis of the illness. This is a disease of the brain center and the individual often shows signs of severe overeating, hypersexuality and euphoric disposition. Pick's patients often show signs in their early fifties and nearly all die within eight years of the onset of the illness (Ibid).

Alzheimer’s disease can often be seen during autopsies of the brain.

Accordingly, how are doctors able to diagnosis Alzheimer's disease in the face of all these difficulties? One answer is to look at the article written by Douglas Gelb for the Statistics in Medicine Journal. Dr. Gelb puts forth four areas that could be useful in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's. These are: cognitive testing, global assessment, functional assessment, and behavioral rating scales.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia.

People should learn as much as they want about this disease, because as you age, your chances of becoming an Alzheimer’s Disease, or AD, patient increases.

There are three major systems that are affected by Alzheimer’s.

Cognitive testing, while not directly related to everyday tasks, can be helpful in rating the change in a patient over time. Dr. Gelb discusses at length how copying geometric puzzles and counting backwards by seven doesn't reflect everyday skills. His main point about this kind of testing is the rate of change seen between tests. This rate of change can help doctors diagnose the dementia and classify it into it proper category, one of those being dementia of the Alzheimer's type.

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is mainly a disease of the cerebral cortex.

Studying the effects of different symptoms and their relationship with the patient's dementia are also being conducted. These kinds of studies are useful in diagnosing the particular dementia, as there seem to be slight differences in the amount of dysfunction and its progress in different dementias. For example, gait and balance dysfunctions were studied in a group of patients consisting of individuals with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Vascular dementia. It was seen in this study, as one might expect, that those patients with Parkinson's disease showed the greatest dysfunction in this area (Wait et al, 2000). This is probably due to the fact the Parkinson's disease also severely affects the patient's motor control.
