Washington D.C. [USA], May 4 (ANI): Researchers have developed a new two-tier method that can detect Alzheimer’s disease at an earlier stage. Using the current technique, Alzheimer’s disease can only be detected once the typical plaques have formed in the brain of the patients.The research was published in the journal Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Diagnosis, Assessment…

DEMENTIA is a term given to describe different conditions which affect brain functioning. There’s currently no cure which is why recognising the early symptoms is important. Here are the early signs of the four most common types of dementia. DEMENTIA is a term given to describe different conditions which affect brain functioning.

Using current techniques, Alzheimer's disease, the most frequent cause of dementia, can only be detected once the typical plaques have formed in the brain. At this point, therapy seems no longer possible. However, the first changes caused by Alzheimer's take place on the protein level up to 20 years sooner. A two-tier method can help detect the disease at a much earlier stage.Using current techniques, Alzheimer's disease, the most frequent cause of dementia, can only be detected once the typical plaques have formed in the brain.

Your brain needs to sleep so it can clean out waste products. If you don't sleep well, these can build up and increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease.Your brain needs to sleep so it can clean out waste products.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but not in case when it comes to disease like Alzheimer's. Some people told they have Alzheimer's may instead have a newly identified mimic of the disease and scientists say even though neither is yet curable, it's critical to get better at telling different kinds of dementia apart.
