The Link between Alzheimer's and the Menopause

The Link between Alzheimer's and the Menopause

21st September was World Alzheimer's Day which is an international campaign aimed to raise awareness of this illness.               

There is some confusion as to the difference between Dementia and Alzheimer’s. I for one did not know how to differentiate, but in brief, Dementia refers to a group of symptoms that affect the cognitive tasks such as memory and rationale. Dementia is a collective term for which Alzheimer’s disease falls under and is the most common cause which can lead to Dementia, estimated to be 6 in every 10 Dementia cases.
