September Is World Alzheimer's Month

September is World Alzheimer's Month, an annual campaign organized by Alzheimer's Disease International to raise awareness of the disease and to eliminate the stigma surrounding the condition and other forms of dementia. This year's event marks the seventh World Alzheimer's Month. The movement plays a critical part in educating people around the globe about this life-changing disease. Innovations Stem Cell Center is helping to treat individuals living with Alzheimer's disease and dementia through fat stem cell therapy.

What Is Alzheimer's Disease?

Alzheimer's disease is a form of progressive dementia that causes the loss of memory and other cognitive abilities. The average age of diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease is 65, but 5 percent of those affected are diagnosed before age 65 and are deemed to be "early-onset" Alzheimer's.

The exact cause of the condition is unknown, but a popular theory is that the disease is caused by the development of "plaques" created by two proteins in the brain, tau and amyloid beta, that cause inflammation and malfunctioning of neurons.

The estimated life expectancy of those diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease is eight years.

The Symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease is not just forgetfulness; its symptoms include:

Cognitive Symptoms: Difficulty problem solving and thinking, difficulty with comprehension, confusion, forgetfulness, disorientation and difficulty concentrating

Behavioral Symptoms: Mood swings, aggression, irritability, repetition of words, changes in personality, lack of restraint, getting lost, personality changes, restlessness, lack of self-control, or wandering and getting lost

Psychological Symptoms: Paranoia, auditory and visual hallucinations, and depression

Other Symptoms: Difficulty speaking, loss of appetite, inability to care for oneself, and problems when combining muscle movements

How Many People Have Alzheimer's Disease?

According to the Alzheimer's Association, more than 5.7 million Americans are living with the condition as of this year. Worldwide, estimates put the number of people living with Alzheimer's or an Alzheimer's-related dementia to be around 44 million.

Researchers estimate that only one in four individuals with Alzheimer's have been diagnosed.

Alzheimer's disease and dementia rates are highest in Western Europe and North America. The condition is least common in Sub-Saharan Africa, according to Alzheimer's Disease International.

How Can Stem Cell Therapy Help Treat Alzheimer's Disease?

Stem cell therapy from the Innovations Stem Cell Center can help reduce the impact of Alzheimer's disease and reduce symptoms by reducing the inflammation caused by brain plaques. Stem cells can also help to regenerate new, healthy neurons.
