Alzheimer’s Disease

What can happen to your system?
Alzheimer’s disease affects your Nervous System. It affects your brain though too. In your brain it affects your memory, thinking, behaviour. When you have Alzheimer’s disease, your brain cells die every day. Some common symptoms are loss of memory, misplacing things, less interest in hobbies and interests, difficulty with shopping, behaviour, mood, and depression. Alzheimer’s disease is also a common cause of dementia

Medications
Two approved drugs are cholinesterase inhibitors, memantine.
Cholinesterase inhibitors: memory, confusion, thinking, agreeing.

Diet
If you get Alzheimer’s you could eat vegetables, fruit, fish, and limit fast food and unhealthy snacks.

 What organs can happen to your system if you get Alzheimer’s
 The Brain is the most powerful organ in the whole body. It weighs 3 pounds and has 3 main parts.

The 3 main parts are:
Cerebrum: It fills up most of your skull. It is involved in remembering, problem solving, thinking, and feeling.

Cerebellum:  The cerebellum is at the back of your head, it controls and coordination and balance.
Brain Stem: Sits under your cerebrum, in front of your cerebellum. It connects with the brain, spinal cord, and controls functions like, breathing, digestion, and heart rate. 

Can people die from Alzheimer ’s disease?
Yes people can die for Alzheimer’s disease.
Why do people die from Alzheimer’s disease?

People can die from Alzheimer’s disease because this is not just a memory disease. This is also a complex disease. You can die from Alzheimer’s because it also affects your Higher Brain Functions and Learning. 
 
What happens when you have Alzheimer’s when you sleep
It is common that people with Alzheimer’s fall asleep during the day, but can’t fall asleep at night. It’s called “sun downing.” 

Who is it common to?
It is common to elders. It is not at all common to kids. It may happen when you are about 20 to 40 but it is mainly common to the elders.

FUN FACTS
It’s the common to the human nervous system. The Nervous System is more complicated than the most advanced computer. Did you know that Alzheimer’s warning sign is a finger with a bow on it so it looks like this.

The 7 stages of Alzheimer’s disease
The 7 stages if you Alzheimer’s are:

Stage 1: You are functioning normally, and there are no problems.
Stage 2: You are starting to lose an item, and it is a tiny harder to do tasks.
Stage 3: It is now hard remembering names, and also hard organising.
Stage 4:  You start to now forget things and forget events.

Stage 6: There is a bigger loss of memory. You may not remember your name, language, and you become lost.
Stage 7: You become very lost, and can barely remember anything.

What are the causes or disease of the illness?
Scientists and Doctors have not figured out why you get Alzheimer’s.

Treatments

What can you do to prevent the disease?

The most you can prevent is 70-80%. You can also be active, have a good balanced diet, having good health, and exercising the brain.
Cures

BRAIN CANCER

It is a disease of the brain. It is the growth of cells of the brain. A general tumor is less serious than a malignant tumor. Brain cancer can kill you if it’s bad. It can make you feel nauseous and sick. It hurts a lot. Brain cancer takes up a quarter of a brain. Brain cancer can have a wild variety of causes. Brain cancer can affect the brain cells.  It is when the process of living goes wrong in the brain that Brain Cancer occurs. Brain cancer is also called brain tumor. Symptoms may be caused when a tumor presses on a nerve.  Almost 200 people die a day. It turns much of your brain black.  Brain cancer is a Disease of the brain that can affect the growth of cells of in the brain.      By: Denyce & Caden
