Alzheimer's & Dementia

By Professor Yoland Lim Health Care

Losing your memory?

Getting lost often?

Relying solely on your cars' GPS?


Did you know dementia not only has effects on memory? In severe cases, it causes hospital Emergency Departments to have to use chemical or mechanical restraint. A study from Royal Melbourne Hospital, recently published by Australian Doctor online showed:

  1. One in five patients needed prescription restraints (i.e. antipsychotics or benzodiazepines).
  2. Some patients also needed mechanical restraint. 40% of restraints were due agitation.

Alzheimer's and Dementia are mentally crippling conditions where memory is lost, and loved ones cannot even recognize family and friends. Alzheimer's link to even just one night of poor sleep. 

 

Washington University School of Medicine have discovered that even one night of disrupted sleep is enough to raise levels of the brain protein amyloid beta, which is linked with Alzheimer's disease. When this clumps together it can stop neuronal brain cells talking with each other, which can destroy neurons and erase memory.


In Australia, more than 1 in 3 adults complain of significant sleep issues, with even more saying they "don't feel refreshed when they wake in the morning". "Lack of sleep impacts your concentration, you become forgetful and display irritation. Your cognition deteriorates, and even a mild cognitive impairment can be a warning sign for Alzheimer's disease"- Dr Justin Lim.


Research reported in the Medical Journal of Australia from an international study involving Germany, the US and the UK suggested that lack of navigational skills may be an early sign of Alzheimer's disease. Although there are multiple factors which contribute to the severity of Alzheimer's, this may provide us with an avenue to diagnosing this chronic condition in its early stages in the future.
