Alzheimers Before 40?

You know sometimes we have to have these critical conversations. So, let’s have one now. 👄

✅   Chances are you know someone like my Dear Uncle Julio, my inspiration to become a Medical Doctor from the age of 4, who is now a vegetable mentally from Alzheimers disease.

Inga you might say; “Well Dr. Isabel, why aren’t you curing him?” Fair question, and the answer SUCKS! 🤬  🤬  🤬

It was only after my beautiful Uncle was diagnosed, 😢.  which by that time he was already in serious trouble, that I decided to learn about what can TRULY be done about this mental disease. Unfortunately, there is a point of no return, that’s a fact friends.

✅  Now it’s time to get the facts to you about the “End of Alzheimers” movement by Dr. Dale Bredesen and the Apollo health team.

We can prevent and reverse cognitive decline!  

By Dale Bredesen, M.D., Chief Science Officer for Apollo Health

The march of anti-Alzheimer drug candidates continues: aducanumab, an anti-amyloid antibody, is awaiting a ruling by the FDA (due by June), after having been rejected in the past and following a recent strong recommendation against approval by the expert panel convened to review the data. Donanemab, another anti-amyloid antibody, in Phase II showed no improvement in patients and did not prevent decline, but did show a slowing of decline by about one-third, which was hailed as a major success by its pharmaceutical company (as Garry Trudeau noted in Doonesbury recently, most pharmacists recommend the products they sell…). Galantamine, a cholinesterase inhibitor similar to donepezil, reduced the risk for progression to severe dementia but did not stop the cognitive decline.

There is an old African proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.” That is excellent advice in many cases, but what happens when you do go together, and you do indeed go very far — but it is in the wrong direction? Perhaps you end up developing monotherapy after monotherapy after monotherapy, none of which has an optimal effect to reverse cognitive decline sustainably? Perhaps you are on a Gadarene march instead of a march toward a cure?

Result after result supports the concept that, in order to effect sustained cognitive improvement, we must identify the various contributors and target these with a comprehensive, personalized approach. We are all learning more about what the critical contributors are, what techniques must be improved, and how to achieve optimal and sustainable outcomes. We are all making progress — now this is a march worth taking together.
