When we think of the most deadly diseases prevailing in the world, our minds directly think about fast-spreading, and the incurable ones that grab the headlines from time to time. But according to researches, many of such diseases don’t even rank in the top 10 reasons for worldwide deaths. The majority of people all around the world passed away due to diseases that progress slowly.
And one of the major causes that account for deaths which also made the top 10 list is: ‘Alzheimer’s’.

We Udaipurites shop and always have a tremendous time at the Forum Celebration Mall. Now, it’s our turn to make our mark present in Udaipur’s history as well, history to create awareness about this common yet unknown disease: Alzheimer’s. It’s time to make it real BIG by participating in Forum Purple Run’19. Everyone can be part of such a noble cause.
It is India’s first-ever run organized by renowned Forum Group, for creating awareness about Alzheimer’s disease. The main aim is to create awareness, sensitivity, and dignity towards this disease.
Now let us understand what Alzheimer’s is:
It is a syndrome which is associated with the decline of brain functioning specifically amongst the people aged 50 or above. It majorly affects the memory storing capacity, thinking, logical skills and other mental abilities.
The exact cause of this disease is not yet known, still, several factors are thought to increase your risk of developing this disease.
- Growing old,
- Hereditary conditions,
- Depressions, and many more.
Various Stages of Alzheimer’s disease:
•Stage 1: Normal Outward Behavior
When your loved one is in this early phase, he won’t have any symptoms that’ll show that they have got Alzheimer’s. But as they move into the further stages, you will see major changes in their thinking and reasoning.
•Stage 2: Very Mild Changes
You still might not notice major changes, but they might be picking up on small differences. This could include forgetting a word or misplacing objects.
•Stage 3: Mild Decline
At this point that you may start to notice changes in the patient’s thinking.
•Stage 4: Moderate Decline
During this time, the problems in their thinking and reasoning that you noticed in the stage get more obvious. They might forget important details about themselves.
Though Alzheimer’s has no cure as such, treatments for symptoms are still available and research to find a cure continues. Current Alzheimer’s treatments cannot stop this disease from progressing, but they can temporarily slow the worsening of the symptoms and improve quality of life. Today, there is a worldwide effort under experiment to find better ways to treat the disease, delay the disease’s onset, and prevent it from developing further.
