Alzheimers disease. Early intervention works best for these people

uA study by Florida Atlantic University in the United States reveals that early treatments to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, a neurological disease that causes progressive memory loss and cognitive impairment, are more effective in women.

Changes in diet, less exposure to stress, physical exercise, and more positive sleeping habits can help prevent the disease, which accounts for about 60-70% of all cases of dementia – a general term used to describe a range of conditions characterized by cognitive changes such as memory loss, language changes and disorientation in time or space.

The authors of the study used data from volunteers who had participated in a 10-year study of the effects of lifestyle changes on cognitive function and risk factors for dementia. Physical, bloody, cognitive, and genetic tests were analyzed. Everyone received medications, vitamins, supplements, and a series of individual lifestyle measures.

Richard Isaacson, one of the authors of the study, told CNN in an interview that women are 39% more likely to develop Alzheimer’s if they have excess fat in their abdomen. “Rapid decline in estrogen during perimenopause may be one of the most influential risk factors for the development of Alzheimer’s disease,” the doctor explains.

It must be remembered that the World Health Organization estimates that there are 47.5 million people with dementia in the world, which could rise to 75.6 million in 2030 and almost triple in 2050 to 135.5 million.
