Alltimers Diease

Were you looking for information about Alzheimer's Disease? Alltimers diease is a common misspelling of Alzheimer's disease.
 
An estimated half of all Americans over 85 years of age may have Alzheimer's disease. People with this condition typically show signs of memory loss, confusion, and impaired judgment. Other symptoms can include restlessness, a deterioration of language skills, and mood swings.
 
The brain tissue of someone with Alzheimer's disease often contains abnormal protein clumps and tangled bundles of fibers. However, the exact reasons why these abnormalities occur are still unknown. While age appears to be the most important risk factor, research scientists are also studying the role of genetics in the development of the disease. People with Alzheimer's typically live for 8 to 10 years after they are diagnosed.
