Although every day we read news reports linking health problems to diet and lifestyle, there remains significant confusion regarding the onset and progression of Alzheimers disease. Worldwide, more than 35 million people are currently suffering from Alzheimers, and that number is expected to increase substantially over the next decade.Understanding Alzheimers introduces readers to the inner workings of Alzheimers, how the disease progresses, and what patients and caregivers can do to live with the disease. Following the astonishing path sufferers take from being sharp-minded to cognitively impaired, the book reveals how patients and their loved ones can cope with its mental, physical, and economic effects.
Dr. Naheed Ali sifts through the information currently available on Alzheimers to clearly and accessibly illustrate how Alzheimers works, how we can prevent it, and how we can address it once symptoms begin to appear. Covering diet and lifestyle, medical interventions and the stages of Alzheimers, he draws readers into a fuller understanding of the disease. Providing an accessible starting point for anyone wishing to learn more about Alzheimers, this book will prove to be an indispensable resource.
