Can Alzheimer's begin in 20s? Here are signs of early onset Alzheimer's disease
Alzheimer's disease is one the most common types of dementia and while the classic symptoms of the disease often begin after the age of 65 years, a new research published in Neurology journal suggests that beta-amyloid proteins that forms plaques in the brain may begin accumulating as early as 20s. The researchers saw how beta-amyloid proteins gradually accumulated throughout life and supports previous research that found these plaques in the brain decades before the onset of Alzheimer's symptoms. Diagnosing the disease early on can help manage the symptoms effectively.
