    What age would you start looking for these symptoms .

    • Alzheimer potential

      I’m 36 and I have all symptoms!!!!

    Female and age 74, after a CAT scan and MRI for a suspected TIA, the only thing found was small vessel brain disease. Intervals on the treadmill were recommended, among other things. I don’t know whether I should go up to 4.5, tho it isn’t fast enough that I can’t talk, but I have to hold on. Or should I never go fast enough to need to hold on. Faster would get more blood pumping to my brain, but slower would work on my balance, which is relatively poor. (I have to hold on above 3 mph.)

    These same symptoms can be caused by low body temperature as a result of hypothyroidism. Make sure your body is functioning at 98.6 before you jump to the wrong conclusion! I find these short articles very misleading.

    Anemia also can have some of those issues also…inability to find words is the one I experience the most when my anemia is not under control.

    As has become common, this article confuses Alzheimer’s disease with cognitive decline due to vascular/circulatory issues. They are NOT the same.
    Alzheimer’s has a specific physiologic condition comprised of plaques and tangles and it has a specific and irreversible progression.

    The same is not true of cognitive decline due to vascular problems. Those issues are due to either a one-time stroke or an ongoing series of mini strokes — or sometimes the decline is simply due to starving the brain due to clogged arteries blocking the blood flow.
    Vascular problems can be halted or reversed with proper treatment.
    Alzheimer’s cannot. If you get Alzheimer’s you will become a vegetable. Period. There is no treatment for it and no halting it.
    But, the health care system increasing insists on mixing and merging the two diseases and causing unnecessary confusion and suffering. But, that keeps the Alzheimer’s Association happy because they can continue to report that “Alzheimer’s is the largest cause of dementia”. It isn’t — unless you add in the vascular dementias…

    Uh, hate to act like the special ed teacher I am, but did you notice that you numbered your “three things,” like this: 1, 2, 1? If I don’t sleep well, I just can’t carry on a decent conversation.

    Why don’t you tell people how to avoid toxic fluoride? They put it in our municipal water supplies and in toothpastes, telling us it prevents tooth decay, yet it causes fluoridosis, and calcifies the pineal gland in our brains. Why has our own country been doing this to us, when most countries pay to have fluoride safely disposed of? And now with chemtrails, dropping metric tonnage of heavy metals over our land and waterways, and GMO’s in feeds, and Mercury in dental fillings, it begins to look like depopulation. Because that’s exactly what it is. They’re killing us. You want to avoid alzheimers? Don’t use tap water. Go to a homeopathic dentist and have all your amalgam fillings removed/replaced with ceramic. That’s a good start.
