TUESDAY, May 9, 2017 -- A study of nearly 100,000 people overturns the notion that being thin somehow raises a person's odds for Alzheimer's disease.
Instead, the Danish research suggests, people with early stage Alzheimer's disease can have less appetite and lose weight. So, it's the illness that may be causing the thinness, not the other way around.
TUESDAY, May 2, 2017 -- Undetected or "silent" seizures may contribute to some symptoms associated with Alzheimer's disease, such as confusion, a small study suggests.
The seizures occur in the hippocampus -- a part of the brain involved in the consolidation of memories. Researchers suspect that treating these seizures could help manage Alzheimer's or possibly slow it down.
TUESDAY, April 11, 2017 -- Healthy aging of the brain relies on the health of your heart and blood vessels when you're younger, a new study reports.
People with risk factors for heart disease and stroke in middle age are more likely to have elevated levels of amyloid, a sticky protein known to clump together and form plaques in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease, the researchers said.
