World Alzheimer's Day,Alzheimer's Month,Alzheimer's Disease

CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D said that the study portrays that as the USA population grows the number of people impacted by Alzheimer's disease and associated dementias will also grow particularly amongst splinter groups.

The study is the first ever to project Alzheimer's and dementia rates by race and ethnicity.

Alzheimer's has multifaceted impact on the individual, family and society as it is incurable, as researchers have been helpless in unravelling the mysteries of the genesis of senile plaques (deposits of amyloid proteins) and neurofibrillary tangles (bundles of dead neurones) within the brain of Alzheimer's patients, says Dr. Shaji.

Today is World Alzheimer's Day, and the release of Dementia International's "World Alzheimer's Report" providing a snapshot of current research and future plans.

Of the 5 million Americans diagnosed with Alzheimer's or related dementias in 2014, the lowest prevalence was in Asian and Pacific Islanders (8.4 percent) and the highest in African-Americans (13.8 percent). After looking at CT scans from 1,991 seniors, the team found that older age, diabetes and smoking were associated with an increased risk of hippocampal calcifications, with previous research also linking Alzheimer's disease to the breakdown of the hippocampus. That number is forecasted to escalate to increase to 13.9 million, nearly 3.3 percent of the population, in 2060.

Six of the most common misconceptions asked by people facing Alzheimer's disease have been revealed.

'It is now one of the leading causes of death and disability internationally, with an annual economic cost of more than U.S. $1 trillion. Among Hispanics, 12.2 percent were diagnosed with these conditions, along with 10.3 percent of whites and 9.1 percent of American Indian and Alaska natives.

According to the study, the highest number of cases have the non-Hispanic whites because of the size of the population, but the highest projected increase is faced by Hispanics. But as more people live longer, the numbers will inevitably go up.

Hilary Evans, the chief executive, said: "In the same way medical research has overcome other diseases in the past, we can make the same breakthroughs for people affected by dementia and their families". "An early assessment and diagnosis is key to planning for their health care needs, including long-term services and supports, as the disease progresses".
