According to psychiatrist Manuel Escalante, a member of the technical team of the Department of Mental Health of the Ministry of Health (Minsa), this disease appears usually after 60 years of age but younger people may develop signs.
“He added that it is difficult to determine who will develop Alzheimer’s disease because it is a complex alteration of unknown cause and in which multiple factors such as old age, family inheritance, environment, smoking, fat diets, among others are involved”, Andina News Agency said.
People with Alzheimer’s disease can present disorientation, even in known places, and character changes, such as irritability, confusion, apathy, decay, lack of initiative and spontaneity.
