Of the top 10 causes of death globally, Alzheimer’s is the only one that can’t currently be cured, slowed down, or prevented-- at least not yet. The disease manifests in different ways, with some patients living 20 years after diagnosis, but most often in the range of four to eight years. Although 80% of those with the disease are 75 or over, Alzheimer’s typically emerges in midlife, remarkably--20 to 30 years before symptoms like memory loss or troubles with language appear. You can have it and not know it. One prominent researcher told Barrons: “Alzheimer’s is a disease of greater prevalence and greater lethality than Covid-19” He went on to say: “This is an ongoing pandemic. Its cost to America in terms of direct medical costs is significantly higher than cancer.” There are some treatment breakthroughs...we'll tell you about them and then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us. A fact filled show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
