Alzheimer's And Dementia: Death Rates Under Reported

Alzheimer's And Dementia: Death Rates Under Reported
 

(Calgary, AB) On April 5, 2014, CTV News aired a  two part segment which focused on a study authored by Bryan D James of the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago which concluded "that the death rates from Alzheimer's was vastly unreported".


The study  published in the journal "Neurology" suggest that the disease is responsible for six times more deaths than is officially recorded. It suggest that  "alzheimer’s disease may contribute to nearly as many deaths as heart disease and cancer in the United States than was initially believed."
 
According to James, "knowing that almost as many people may die from Alzheimer’s disease as cancer and heart disease is a very eye opening piece of knowledge for the public, and for people who make funding decisions."

He continued, "it is clear from the findings that Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are 'under-reported' on death certificates and in medical records. Death certificates often list the immediate cause of death, such as pneumonia, rather than listing dementia as an underlying cause,”

Dr. Sandra Black, a neurologist at Toronto's Sunnybrook Health Sciences, echoed the findings of the study when she commented,  'dementia and Alzheimer's weakens the body, leaving it open to infections... if you didn't have dementia, you would probably not be dying, you would not be getting the pneumonia."
 
For James, “determining the true effects of dementia in this country is important for raising public awareness and identifying research

When asked to comment on this study Life Choice's CEO, Dr. Eldon Dahl   (ND) said "Alzheimer's and Dementia is a concern for many. It's just not a disease for the elderly. Men and women in their 40's and 50's are now being diagnosed with the disease"

He continued,  "I believe that education and a healthy lifestyle are key in fighting this disease. At Life Choice we understand the importance of this healthy lifestyle.That is why we use only the purest natural ingredients in all of our formulations."
