The symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease vary with each person. Early symptoms may include confusion, irritability, forgetfulness, poor judgement, inability to concentrate and changes in personality and behavior.
Alzheimer's Disease is only diagnosed when all other illnesses are excluded. The similarity between Alzheimer's and other conditions such as brain tumors, abnormal thyroid function and vascular disorders make the diagnosis very difficult. It is critical that other illnesses be eliminated because some of them can be treated.
At present, there is no cure for Alzheimer's Disease. It is imperative that the person be under a physician's care. The physician chosen should have the time and interest to closely monitor treatment and be able to answer the many questions about Alzheimer's Disease. Medical care can relieve some of these symptoms and proper guidance can assist in coping with the illness.
