Are You at Risk for Alzheimer’s Disease? 

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia in older adults, and symptoms usually start to appear after the age of 60.

“Recognizing the early warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease, and seeking medical attention promptly can help make the disease easier to manage,” says Jose C. Vigario, D.O., board certified in internal medicine, geriatric medicine, primary care, and a member of the Medical Staff of Princeton Health.

Alzheimer’s is a progressive brain disorder that normally develops slowly and gradually worsens as brain function declines.

While anyone can develop Alzheimer’s disease, certain risk factors can contribute to its development, including age, family history and medical conditions, such as head trauma, depression, heart disease, high cholesterol, thyroid disease and low B12 and folic acid levels.

Signs of Alzheimer’s disease may include: memory loss; difficulty completing familiar daily tasks; confusion over time or place; trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships; challenges with words in speaking or writing; misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps; decreased or poor judgment; and changes in mood and personality.

Although there is no way to absolutely prevent dementia, modifying risk factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and alcohol intake, and keeping diabetes well controlled along with exercising regularly, can help.

Many other health conditions can impact memory, so it is important to have a complete medical assessment if you begin noticing symptoms. Early diagnosis can allow patients and their families more time to plan for the future and get the maximum benefit from treatment.
