What are the main symptoms of Alzheimer Disease?
Alzheimer Disease (AD) is a common cause of dementia. It begins with general forgetfulness, but this can lead to memory loss and impaired judgment. People with more advanced symptoms can feel lost or confused by regularly visited places and common activities. People with AD may lose the ability to live independently. Changes to behavior are reported as well, and people may react inappropriately in social situations. Impatience, agitation, and withdrawal are described as symptoms. Symptoms of Alzheimer Disease can start as mild but typically progress over time.
