Alzheimer's A Sad Disease With No Cure

by Richard Kuehn on 12/05/19

According to researchers, roughly 6 million adults in the United States and 50 million worldwide live with dementia.  This number is expected to more than double by 2060.  Unfortunately, there is no one test that can officially diagnose you with Alzheimer’s disease, this can only be done via an autopsy after you are gone.  The National Institutes of Health Reports that Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, resulting in about 60-80% of dementia cases.  “Alzheimer’s dementia classically is a slow decline.  Usually short-term memory is the first thing people have a problem with.  You can look back over a couple years, often, and see that decline,” Costco member Dr. Jeffrey Landsman told Costo Connection (September 2019, page 90).
