Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most challenging diseases of our time, and new research is being conducted all the time. The latest Alzheimer’s study results as well as information on prevention, treatment, caregiving, and respite can be found on Emaxhealth.

Calorie Restriction May Prevent Alzheimer's

Symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease may be calmed by experimental dietary regimens.

A recent study directed by Mount Sinai School of Medicine suggests that experimental dietary regimens might calm or even reverse symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease (AD). The study, which appears in the July 2006 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry, is the first to show that restricting caloric intake, specifically carbohydrates, may prevent Alzheimer's Disease by triggering activity in the brain associated with longevity.


Researchers Discover Mechanism That Could Lead to New Treatments for Alzheimer's Disease

An enzyme previously associated with preventing the dementia of Alzheimer's disease now appears to play an even bigger role in safeguarding against the disease, bringing the promise of new targets for drug therapies.


Loss of Body Mass Linked to Development of Alzheimer's Disease

Loss of body mass over time appears to be strongly linked to older adults' risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD), and the greater the loss the greater the chance of a person developing the disease, new research has found. The findings are the first to associate decline in body mass index (BMI) with the eventual onset of Alzheimer's disease. The researchers suggest that the loss of body mass reflects disease processes and that change in BMI might be a clinical predictor of the development of Alzheimer's disease.
