Enfermedad de Alzheimer's (Alzheimer's Disease)

Resumen

La enfermedad de Alzheimer (EA) es un trastorno neurológico que provoca la muerte de las células nerviosas del cerebro. Por lo general, la EA comienza paulatinamente y sus primeros síntomas pueden atribuirse a la vejez o al olvido común. A medida en que avanza la enfermedad, se van deteriorando las capacidades cognitivas, entre ellas la capacidad para tomar decisiones y llevar a cabo las tareas cotidianas, y pueden surgir modificaciones de la personalidad, así como conductas problemáticas. En sus etapas avanzadas, la EA conduce a la demencia y finalmente a la muerte.
