Might fumes from burning aluminum cause alzheimer's?

Might fumes from burning aluminum cause alzheimer's?

No science for that: Aluminum does not, in any way, cause alzheimers. More than 15 years ago, researchers identified higher quantities of aluminum in the brains of those with alzheimers and even autism. It is the result of the blood-brain barrier being broken. In other words, it is a result, not a cause. During the 1960s and 1970s, aluminum emerged as a possible suspect in causing alzheimer’s disease. This suspicion.

Does aluminum cause alzheimer's disease?

Does aluminum cause alzheimer's disease?

BFS x1 year, affecting face, arms, back. Normal mri, emg. Recently stopped using aluminum products (deoderant, cake mixes) and that is helping. Why?

BFS x1 year, affecting face, arms, back. Normal mri, emg. Recently stopped using aluminum products (deoderant, cake mixes) and that is helping. Why?

Poss but not probabl: Isolated aluminum toxicity is exceedingly rare unless you are a chronic renal failure patient on dialysis. Magnesium deficiency has been associated with BFS but to my knowledge there is no association with aluminum ingestion. Hence, probably a chance association but no causality.

Not uncommon: Increase fiber in your diet, and drink more water, as this may assist. A stool softener may also be an answer. But if all else fails, could stop and switch to a cholinesterase inhibitor, such as Aricept or Exelon (rivastigmine).

How are head injuries a cause of alzheimers?

How are head injuries a cause of alzheimers?

Repetitive injury: Some of this comes from football and hockey players, who have experienced repetitive concussions and head injuries and eventually develop dementia at a young age. These clinical patterns mimic Alzheimer's, but the pathology is more localized to the brain surface with injury. In many pts, head injury increases the risk but does not CAUSE the problem.

Could head injuries be a cause of alzheimers?

Could head injuries be a cause of alzheimers?

Maybe: They can present in diff ways: due to damage to the neurons themselves (contussion or bleeding), damage to the white matter tracts (most common), or in worst cases with multiple injuries, progress to a neurodegenerative disease called CTE which shows pathology in TDP-43 and Tau (like frontotemporal lobar degeneration). They are all risk factors for DAT (alzheimers type) as well.

Can Alzheimer's cause gastroparesis?

Can Alzheimer's cause gastroparesis?

It can be related: The dementing brain and the aging body are connected. When the 'thinking' function of the brain starts to seriously decline than bodily functions like swallowing, voiding, bowel elimination can also go down in a parallel fashion. As always, be on the lookout for other issues that could be causing the gastroparesis unrelated to the dementia.

Does masturbation cause alzheimer?

Does masturbation cause alzheimer?

Alzheimer's Disease: I am sorry that I did not consider your question as part of a cultural body of beliefs, but in fact we have not figured out what causes alzheimer's disease, besides certain genetic predisposition, age and particular lesions in the brain. Masturbation is not a cause of any type of dementia, although there are some individuals who develop an impulse control disorder, to masturbate compulsively.
