Alzheimer’s Disease

This is the most common form of dementia, which accounts for up to 80 percent of the reported cases. Early symptoms include depression, forgetfulness, and depression. However, many doctors often misdiagnose Alzheimer’s disease with depression. This condition causes the death of many brain cells. Over time, mood changes, difficulty walking or speaking, and confusion may occur. The elderly tend to develop Alzheimer’s disease. [2]
