I read that losing weight can dramatically decrease the chance of getting Alzheimer's disease. What about those in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease? Can controlling weight slow the progression of the disease?

By staying active and alert can somehow avoid the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Scientists believe that for most people, Alzheimer's disease is caused by a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that affect the brain over time. Less than 5 percent of the time, Alzheimer's is caused by specific genetic changes that virtually guarantee a person will develop the disease. For the proper treatment of this disease, it is important to start the right medications and treatment process from the very first stage itself. Alzheimer's care Morris County NJ team is a well known organisation which provides the proper treatment process for the Alzheimer's patient and let them live a healthy life too. I think this is the easiest way one can go for the right treatment.
