Alzheimer’s Awareness Month Special: Unleash the Power to Reduce Risk Factors and Safeguard Your Cognitive Health
Bumrungrad International Hospital, our corporate member, a global pioneer in providing world-class holistic healthcare with innovation and international patient support for over four decades, shares the movement to reduce risk factors of Alzheimer’s and pave the way for a healthier brain and a fuller life during Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.
For three decades, Alzheimer’s research has explored the irreversible brain disorder affecting millions globally, gradually impairing memory and cognition. While no cure exists yet, research has revealed insights into its causes and symptom management.
The latest advancement is the Anti-amyloid injection, stemming from the knowledge that Alzheimer’s might be connected to the accumulation of toxic proteins in the brain, called Amyloid. However, its effectiveness is limited to early stages with significant side effects. Therefore, detecting and intervening early for Alzheimer’s prevention are vital.
Key Alzheimer’s risk factors?
- Head injury
- Bad sleep quality (reduce ability to wash out toxic proteins in the brain)
- Limited education level
- Bad hydration (recommended 1.5 to 2L daily)
- No regular exercise
- Unhealthy diet
- Less social activities
- Metabolic disease (high blood pressure/cholesterol…)
