Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disease that causes the patient to suffer from progressive intellectual deterioration. Currently, there is still no known cure, so several institutions organized Alzheimer's associations to primarily spearhead researches on the disorder.

Alzheimer's associations are usually non-profit organizations that focus on matters related to Alzheimer's disease; the primary concern is to develop a treatment for this disorder. Doctors have developed medications that are capable of slowing down the degenerative process, but there are no cures that can completely eliminate the disease. Alzheimer's associations are also responsible for spreading information campaigns to educate the public on the disorder. Professional caregivers are trained by the associations to provide proper care to patients.

Researches

Through the funding of Alzheimer's associations, researches have yielded discoveries on nutrition that can prevent a person from acquiring Alzheimer's disease. It was discovered that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs could delay or lower the risk of Alzheimer's disease. It was also discovered that increasing the consumption of a combination of vitamins C and E significantly lowers the risk of the disease. Evidence shows that inclusion of fish in the weekly diet is beneficial because of the Omega 3 fatty acid contents.

Researches have also yielded the development of inhibitors that can slow down the progression of the disease. There are also ongoing studies on vaccines for Alzheimers disease. Intake of medical nicotine is also believed to have delaying effects on intellectual deterioration.

Information Campaigns

Alzheimers associations give away pamphlets, brochures, videos and other forms of media to help educate the public of this disorder. It is believed that if family and friends or those closest to the patient know what signs to look for, the deterioration process could be slowed down.

Caregivers

Professional caregivers are trained by Alzheimers associations and they can be employed by family members to take care of the patient. Doctors believe that it is very important that the patient be treated in a familiar setting to delay the effects of the disease and eventually eliminate the need for more costly professional treatments.

Alzheimers provides detailed information on Alzheimers, Alzheimers Symptoms, Alzheimers Care, Alzheimers Associations and more. Alzheimers is affiliated with Adult Disposable Diapers.
