The lack of spatial orientation is one of the symptoms of this disease
Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most common forms of dementia, and it is a progressive brain disease that is most characteristic of memory loss.
The latest scientific estimates reveal that by 2020, there could be 43 million cases in the world, by 81 million by 2040, and by 2050 more than 115 million demented patients.
However, memory loss is not the only symptom of this disease. There are other signs that are rarely associated with the development of dementia.
The first symptom that occurs is usually forgetfulness when dealing with recent events, but a relatively long-lasting memory, and this is often attributed to “aging forgetfulness.”
However, a person suffering from Alzheimer’s disease has frequent behavioral changes, becomes depressed, or has a laugh attack. Quite common are the situations when you can not remember where they left the keys, and there are problems about recalling which date or year we are.
The spatial orientation of otherwise known locations may also be a problem. It is not uncommon for even if doubts begin to unfold in strangers, fear, and accusations directed at other people for theft of personal belongings.
There are also problems with the maintenance of everyday hygiene, as well as the inability to make logical sentences. Rarely, it connects the itching and compulsive rash with Alzheimer’s disease. Uncommonly, these people can become itchy until they release their blood, but it is not known which is the connection of this symptom with Alzheimer’s.
Although vision problems are also attributable to age, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Journal of Epidemiology, it is cited as one of the early symptoms of dementia in the later stages of life.
Elderly people with low vision are exposed to five to ten times the risk of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia over a period of 8.5 years after deterioration of vision.
