DEMENTIA
Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures an annual report released by the Alzheimer's Association, reveals the burden of Alzheimer's and dementia on individuals, caregivers, government and the nation's health care system.

• "1 in 3 seniors will die from Alzheimer's or some other form of dementia - Alzheimer's kills more individuals than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined

• Covid-19 contributed to a 17% increase in Alzheimer's and dementia deaths in 2020

• Less than 1 in 5 Americans are familiar with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), which can be an early stage of Alzheimer’s

• One-third of people with MCI (due to Alzheimer’s disease) develop dementia within five years of a diagnosis

• 90% of physicians agree that it is important to diagnose MCI because of Alzheimer’s, but over half say they are not fully comfortable diagnosing it.

While most changes in the brain that cause dementia can worsen over time, thinking and memory problems caused by the following conditions may improve when the condition is treated or addressed:

Depression.
Medication side effects.
Excess use of alcohol.
Thyroid problems.
Vitamin deficiencies

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that estrogen deprivation that commonly occurs is associated with higher rates of Alzheimer’s?
And that women on hormone therapy with estrogen, are 58% less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease based on a new University of Arizona health sciences study.
 
 
As published in the journal Alzheimer's And Dementia, women taking menopausal hormone therapy for six years or greater are 79% less likely to develop Alzheimer’s and 77% less likely to develop any neurodegenerative disease. The effect was greatest when taking human-identical estrogen and progesterone as opposed to synthetic hormones. 
 
Estrogen prevents disease by keeping the brain healthy.
