Dementia - Cognitive Decline

Cellular Inflammation is the root cause of all disease

Cognitive Aging vs Alzheimer’s Disease

  • Cognitive aging is different from AD
  • When people get older, sometimes they forget things, they lose their keys
  • You have a word on the tip of your tongue, but can’t get it out immediately
  • But you remember that word later, and you find your keys later
  • These are non-pathological changes associated with aging that don’t affect ADL

What is the prevalence of Alzheimer’s in America?

  • Anyone with a brain is at risk for AD
  • Prevalence of AD is typically reported between 5-6 million Americans
  • Up to 47 million Americans have preclinical AD, meaning they have AD in the brain, but no symptoms
  • Globally 160 million people will develop Alzheimer’s by 2050
  • Alzheimer’s is by far the most expensive disease to manage, with costs exceeding 226 Million in the United States
  • 90% of us can avoid ever getting Alzheimer’s, and 10% with a strong genetic risk for cognitive decline, AD can be delayed ten to fifteen years

Key Facts about Alzheimer’s

  • It is a progressive disease of the brain that impairs memory, thinking, mood and problem solving
  • Alzheimer’s disease is one type of dementia that accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases
  • The majority of patients notice the first symptoms in their mid-sixties and early seventies
  • Alzheimer’s is grossly underreported on death certificated, likely making it the third leading cause of death in the United States
  • The pathology associated with Alzheimer’s disease includes, amyloid plaques, tau tangles in the brain, loss of connection between neurons, and eventual shrinking of the brain
  • Inflammation, oxidation, glucose dysregulation and lipid dysregulation and the main biological processes that drive the development of Alzheimer’s
  • Alzheimer’s Disease is now commonly referred to as Diabetes Type III. In other words, everyone with insulin resistance is at elevated risk for dementia.
