Alheimers

Were you looking for information about Alzheimer's Disease? Alheimers disease is a common misspelling of Alzheimer's disease.
 
In 1906, Dr. Alzheimer noticed changes in the brain of a woman who had died of an unusual mental illness. Within the brain tissue, he found abnormal clumps and tangled bundles of fibers, which are now considered classic signs of Alzheimer's disease. The course of the disease will vary from one person to the next, but common symptoms include confusion, memory loss, mood swings, and poor judgment.
 
The disease usually begins after age 60, and the risk of developing this condition goes up with age (while people may get the disease at a younger age, this is much less common). There are treatments available that can help treat the symptoms of this disease. However, there is no cure.
