Do you forget your appointments, name of a person, what were you going to do? This can be normal as a person can forget certain things at certain time, but if it is becoming very frequent or troublesome then it could be Alzheimer’s disease. People with Alzheimer's disease (AD) have problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Increasing forgetfulness is one of the initial symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (AD). They tend to forget (such as names, places and things) which develops slowly and worsen as the disease progresses and can become severe enough to interfere with their daily life and tasks.
A person with AD may initially notice that he has difficulty in remembering things and organizing thoughts. But mostly the person may not notice anything and it is the people around him (like family members, friends or co-workers) who feel the change or feel that something is wrong. If any of your family and friends show inappropriate forgetfulness or other symptoms of AD consult a doctor. There is no cure for AD but treatment may possibly slow down progression of the disease, improve symptoms and improve the quality of life for those with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.
