Alzheimer's Disease and Methods of treatment
Alzheimer's disease is one of the most serious diseases threatening the mental health of the older generation. The growing number of cases causes countries with aging population to sound the alarm in recent years. Relatives and friends are horrified at how quickly they may lose consciousness and mental health of their beloved person. There are a number of hypotheses about the main causes of the disease:
- cholinergic hypothesis
- amyloid hypothesis
- tau hypothesis
- infectious hypothesis
However, none of them gives an exhaustive answer about the nature and mechanisms of Alzheimer' disease development and no clues to methods of complete treatment.
For the first time the Alzheimer's disease was described in the early twentieth century. It is also referred to as senile dementia, when elderly people literally lose their mind. In most cases, it affects people aged 65 and over. Recently, however, there are cases of this disease monitored among the younger generation (it is assumed that this is the cause of digital dementia). The number of cases grows exponentially during last decade. Alzheimer's disease is primarily distinguished by the loss of short-term memory. It is revealed quite simply - by memorizing and requesting to repeat the newly learned information. However, as the disease progresses, long-term memory begins to suffer as well.
What medicines are used to treat Alzheimer's disease in Japan?
In Japan, due to the aging of the population, great attention is paid to the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. There are traditional methods of treatment - the newest drugs for Alzheimer's disease, such as Donepezil and Gammalon. Alternative designs showing rather high efficiency are also very popular. Such as phosphatidylserine and its derivatives.
Remember that Alzheimer's drugs should be taken after consultation with your doctor or specialist. Remember to provide full care and observation upon the patient. Japanese medicines for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease show good results subject to their regular and methodical use.
