What are the initial signs of Alzheimer’s Disease?

Mild forgetfulness is a normal thing, but if it affects your daily life, then it is a problem. The signs of Alzheimer’s disease may be seen or noticed years before reaching a diagnosable stage. Signs of Alzheimer’s disease include:

  • Poor judgement
  • Confusion
  • Repetitive questions
  • Losing stuff
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety and aggression
  • Weight loss
  • Increased sleep
  • Difficult to complete day-to-day tasks

If you experience these signs or come across any person who has them, it is recommended to approach a doctor. The doctor will assess overall health by different tests to judge the balance, muscle strength, sight, sense of hearing, coordination, reflexes and ability to walk and sit, etc. 

Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia and a deadly brain disease that degrades thinking and reasoning skills to affect the memory. Due to this, people with the condition find it difficult to interact with other people and strike up a conversation. As the condition worsens, the voluntary motor skills stop working, which inhibits the five senses to process information. This situation withdraws them from their social life. An isolated person may experience loneliness or low self-esteem that further aggravates the condition making it more difficult to treat this condition.
