Alzheimer's and Memory Loss
Memory loss and Alzheimer's are an ongoing threat to millions of Americans each year. According to the Alzheimer's Association, over 6 million individuals are currently living with Alzheimer's, with another 7 million more projected by 2050.
Considered an irreversible neurological disorder, the disease can debilitate the cognitive functions in individuals as neurons and pathways are ultimately destroyed. This directly inhibits memory, thought, and the ability to process new information.
For those suffering from mild cognitive impairment, a new treatment approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Aduhelm, is now capable of slowing the progression of this deterioration. Neurologists like Dr. Vincent can facilitate the extensive screenings and tests required to qualify potential candidates.
If you believe you or a loved one may be suffering from onset cognitive impairment associated with Alzheimer's or severe memory loss, contact Eastern Idaho Neurology for an initial assessment as soon as possible.
