A potential Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis can be terrifying. Many people fail to notice dangerous Alzheimer’s disease symptoms in themselves or others for two reasons: denial and ignorance. Both ignorance and denial can affect an Alzheimer patient’s health long term.
The longer it takes for a diagnosis to be made the less chance a person has to treat symptoms of the disease and to plan for the future. Knowing the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease gives your power over the disease. You cannot stop the disease from developing, but early detection gives you time to focus on the important factors in your life..
Early diagnosis allows you to have time with family and friends before the disease ravishes your mind. It gives you the opportunity to take medication that can mask early symptoms or participate in clinical trials for upcoming medicines. For all these reasons it is important to recognize these 9 early Alzheimer’s disease symptoms.
