2 doctor answers
AD: Alheimers is a chronic progressive neurodegenerative disorder with gradual decline of cerebral function. Memory loss, loss of social and occupational function. Deterioration may take 8-10 years, unfortunately is usually diagnosed in the 4th year of illness because initial symptoms are so subtle. Person life expectancy is about 5-6 years after diagnosis. No cure, meds may slow the process.
