Diagnostic challenges and treatment options: Case presentation on cognitive decline and dementia

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The early diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's disease brings benefit to the patient, his or her family, and the caregivers. Slowing or delaying the progression of disease reduces morbidity, improves functional independence, and decreases overall expense. The interface between cardiovascular health and dementia affords even greater opportunity to impact the management of Alzheimer's disease by recognizing and treating other comorbidities. As we further understand mild cognitive impairment, there may be additional opportunities to intervene even earlier. The authors present the case of a woman with short-term memory loss.
