This title offers everything readers need to know about Alzheimer's disease - in more than 500 entries. Alzheimer's disease is a progressive, degenerative disease that attacks the brain and results in impaired memory, thinking, and behavior. More than 5 million Americans currently suffer from Alzheimer's disease, and that number is projected to leap to 11 million by 2050. As the baby boomer population continues to age, Alzheimer's remains a significant public health problem and there is no cure on the horizon. In more than 500 entries, ""The A to Z of Alzheimer's Disease"" presents a wealth of information on the physical, emotional, and intellectual conditions that affect Alzheimer's sufferers. It also examines the current research on prevention, causes, and treatments, as well as the social issues surrounding the disease. Appendixes include major resources, organizations, helpful books and publications, an extensive bibliography, and a glossary. Topics of this title include: causes of Alzheimer's; diagnosis and symptoms of Alzheimer's; genetics and gene therapy; heredity and Alzheimer's; home health care and home modification; long-term planning and care; memory and mental activity; myths about Alzheimer's; related diseases and health issues; and, treatments and medications.
