Several studies say simple lifestyle choices help preserve thinking and memory.
There are, at this moment, 187 clinical trials for the neurodegenerative disease underway, the highest ever on record, according to a new report from the Alzheimer’s Association (AA). The research was published in the association’s journal, Alzheimer’s & Dementia: Translational Research and Clinical Interventions, last week, featuring data scraped from the ClinicalTrials.gov database.
According to the World Health Organization, Alzheimer's is one of our most debilitating diseases. It effectively erases who you are, insinuating itself at first with annoyance, then anger, then fright, and finally silence. It can take 20 years to play out, exhausting caregivers, family, and friends.
More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, a staggering number that's expected to double within the next 30 years.
New research is showing that an abundance of certain specific types of gut bacteria could be associated with the likelihood of developing Alzheimer's disease.
The World Health Organization recommends against using sugar substitutes to help with weight loss, or to reduce the risk of diet-related diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.
A growing body of evidence suggests that an imbalance of the human gut microbiome is associated with the development of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease (AD) via neuroinflammatory processes across the gut-brain axis. Now, researchers at the University of Las Vegas have identified 10 bacterial groups associated with Alzheimer’s disease, providing new insights into the relationship between the gut and dementia.
Specific types of gut bacteria and Alzheimer's disease are closely related.
The UNLV team’s analysis found a significant correlation between 10 specific types of gut bacteria and the likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Heart Disease is the number one cause of death for women in the United States. And one in three Nevada women have some form of heart disease. Two women share how it affects their lives, and a doctor weighs in on what women should look out for. Plus we’re checking in on the latest going on in Nevada’s Legislative Session, including health-related bills.
The UNLV team’s investigation found a big link between ten particular types of gut bacteria and the chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease.
The analysis — led by a team of researchers with the Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine (NIPM) at UNLV and published this spring in the Nature journal Scientific Reports — examined data from dozens of past studies into the belly-brain connection. The results? There’s a strong link between particular kinds of gut bacteria and Alzheimer’s disease.
