Alzheimers disease is a progressive chronic neurodegenerative disease that is destructive to the mental processes of the body. The disease is accelerating in nature that it typically comes on at a very slow rate affecting the patient’s memory and then progresses over time in more severe complications. Almost seventy percent of all cases of dementia are related to Alzheimers disease. There is a known hereditary gene factor to the disease but the disease also can occur in patients with no family history of Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimers is associated with plaques and tangles in the brain, and overtime brain cells die off at an advanced rate far greater than cell death as a part of normal aging. Plaques are sticky groups of proteins that build up between nerve cells. The groups of proteins block the cell to cell communication and trigger the immune system. The immune system then generates inflammation and kills off damaged cells. Tangles are twisted forms of proteins that form in dying cells. Tangles keep nutrients from moving from cell to cell which also deprives the cell of sustenance to survive.
