What does it mean to have Alzheimer’s disease? It is the most common form of dementia. It accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases specially in the Philippines. It’s usually a slowly progressing disease. The average person lives four to eight years after receiving the diagnosis. Some people may live as many as 20 years after their diagnosis. Alzheimer’s occurs due to physical changes in the brain, including a buildup of certain proteins and nerve damage. #alzheimers #alzheimersawareness #alzheimerssociety #neurologist#specialist #doctor #winnielimkhoo #manila #philippines #health – at Manila Doctors Hospital
