Most elderly people come in the grip of Alzheimer’s.
It is possible to reduce the speed of this disease through treatment.
Can Alzheimer’s Disease Be Reverse: There are many diseases that people are not aware of in the beginning. Alzheimer’s is also one such disease, whose initial symptoms are very common. Due to lack of information, many people reach a serious situation. World Alzheimer’s Day is celebrated every year on 21 September to make people aware about Alzheimer’s disease. This disease usually occurs in elderly people. If treated at the right time, its speed can be reduced. Now the question arises, can Alzheimer’s be eradicated forever through treatment? Let’s know the truth about this from a neurologist.
What is Alzheimer’s disease?
Moolchand Hospital, New Delhi Neurologist Dr. Neeraj Kumar says that Alzheimer’s is a progressive neurological disorder, in which people lose their memory and forget about their daily needs. This is the most common type of dementia. Due to this disease, the brain starts shrinking and the brain cells start getting damaged. Due to this, there is a change in the thinking, understanding, behavior and social activities of the people. Usually this disease occurs in people above 70 years of age. However, due to diabetes, blood pressure and genetic reasons, this disease can also occur at a young age.

What age people are at risk?
According to neurologists, the biggest cause of Alzheimer’s disease is old age. The risk of this disease in the elderly above 90 years is 50 percent and people between 80-90 years have a risk of 10 to 20 percent. Young people are less prone to Alzheimer’s, but it would not be right to say that young people cannot get the disease. Due to genetic reasons, young people can get Alzheimer’s disease. Apart from this, there can be some factors as well.
