What causes the disease?
Alzheimer’s disease in Margaret Borisovna Terekhova, the photo of which is in this article, manifested itself for an incomprehensible reason. The fact is that the disease itself has not yet been fully investigated. Most scientists believe that it is transmitted at the genetic level.
Most often the disease manifests itself after 55 years. At the same time, the gender of the sick person does not matter much, although women are ill more often than men. Usually it affects those who have close relatives who have had a similar disease or Down’s disease.
At the very beginning, it is very difficult, almost impossible to recognize this disease. Even the closest people do not understand that a person has the first signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
The saddest thing is to prevent it altogether impossible. Especially if you can prove that it really has genetic roots. In this case, you can only slow down its development and improve the quality of life of a sick person with the help of drugs. Anna Terekhova is trying to do this for her mother with all her might.
