Alzheimer Dementia in Dubai
You fear having Alzheimer’s Dementia? You are suffering from memory loss? You have difficulties to concentrate? Don´t be afraid. To forget things doesn’t mean you are already suffering from Alzheimer Dementia. But what is Alzheimer Dementia actually?
Alzheimer´s Dementia is a chronic disease of the brain which starts slowly with mild symptoms. One symptom alone is not enough to justify the diagnosis. To forget some things some time does not make an Alzheimer´s Dementia. With ongoing age it is totally normal that your memory becomes worse. When you are 60 years it is more difficult to memorize information than with 50, and with 70 it is more difficult than with 60. That means you forget always a bit more becoming older in a natural way. It is very individual how much and how fast this process is ongoing. This depends on your gens, your general health situation, your environment you live in and your education. In scientific papers is was found that people with high education, university degrees or a sophisticated job, so called “brain workers”, get Alzheimer´s disease more seldom and later than people who work more physically. Our brain has a lot of resources to compensate deficiencies. And a well-trained brain does it better than a “lazy” brain.
There is not only one disease causing dementia. There are different kinds of dementia diseases like Alzheimer, vascular dementia or Lewy Body Disease Dementia. The syndromes of dementia can also be caused by other diseases like stroke, Parkinson, Hydrocephalus, brain tumor and others. It is the task of a neurologist to find out whether a person is suffering from dementia and if so, which kind. The most common dementia disease is the Alzheimer´s disease. Second most common form of dementia is the vascular dementia or a combination of Alzheimer’s Dementia and Vascular Dementia.
In early stages of Alzheimer´s Dementia patients are not only suffering from decline of memory but also other symptoms. People seem to be depressed because they realize their increasing problems. They feel tired, exhausted and try to avoid intellectual demanding tasks. Already in early stages of Dementia people are changing their behaviour. They are losing interest in things which were important for them before, like their job or hobbies. Patients suffering from dementia are avoiding social contacts, they want to be alone or only with very close persons like family members. The surrounding feels that something is wrong. First it is yet too little to talk or to worry about. There are always excuses to explain the changes. Then when the difficulties become more evident people feel unsecure how to talk about. Alzheimers Disease is stigmatized and for both sides it is difficult to face the facts. For the suffering person the same as for the family members or friends.
