Certain types of illness and disease can accentuate the sufferer’s state of mind making them assume that God has harbored a grudge against them. Alzheimer’s disease falls into this category of disease and its aura touches the lives of everyone in the family, not only the sufferer in the picture. With the oncoming of such a life-changing disease, there seems to be quite a few subtle precursors that act as forewarnings and heralds the beginning of a new chapter in life.
According to reports at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Vancouver, researchers theorize that subtle changes in a person’s gait can reflect the decline of cognitive functioning and forewarn the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. They advice that a change in gait should imply that the person in the picture should undergo advanced testing to clear the air. The researchers imply that the valuable finding can indicate the first physical symptom. A total of five studies were conducted on this matter and all the results point out that subtle change in gait and walking patterns can occur even before the detrimental cognitive functioning surfaces. An advantageous benefit of this discovery is that doctors can eliminate the requirement of lengthy diagnosis revolving around time-consuming neurological exams and cognition. According to Bill Thies, the chief scientific and medical officer of the Alzheimer’s Association, another advantage provided by these findings is that it dispels the requirement of costly technological machines. Alzheimer’s disease is said to affect 5.4 million of America’s population and quite disturbingly, this number is said to inflate to 16 million by 2050.
