Did you know that Alzheimer’s disease is the 5th leading cause of death among adults 65 and older? Although the understanding of dementia is still evolving, at HealthTexas we believe early identification is paramount.
There is growing evidence that routine exercise, a healthy diet, and social interaction help slow and even prevent the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Remember, memory loss is not a normal part of aging. If you or a loved one is experiencing forgetfulness, behavior changes, or difficulty managing daily activities, talk to your primary care physician.
Depression, loneliness, certain medications, and other medical conditions can mimic dementia; therefore proper medical diagnosis is vital in identifying dementia.
At HealthTexas, we strive to help our patient’s age gracefully, keeping a healthy body and mind.Steven Ramos, M.D. Factors that may help against Alzheimer’s: • Routine Exercise • A Healthy Diet • Social Interaction Memory Loss Is Not A Normal Part Of Aging Signs of Possible Alzheimer’s: • Forgetfulness • Behavior Changes • Difficulty Managing Daily Activities
