Alzheimer diseases which affects the memory does not just come at a go. It has several stages it goes through before it can be recognized or detected and even before it leads to death. Answer these questions on the stages on Alzheimer.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Early stage symptom of AD is?

    • A.

      Inability to walk

    • B.

      Inability to talk

    • C.

      Inability to recall

    • D.

      Inability to sleep

    Correct Answer
    C. Inability to recall
    Explanation
    One of the early stage symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the inability to recall or remember things. This is because AD affects the brain's ability to store and retrieve memories. As the disease progresses, individuals may have difficulty remembering recent events, conversations, or even familiar people. This symptom is often noticed by family members or close friends who observe the individual's increasing forgetfulness and difficulty in retaining new information.

    The disease is commonly diagnosed after?

    • A.

      25 yrs

    • B.

      45 yrs

    • C.

      65 yrs

    • D.

      85 yrs

    Correct Answer
    C. 65 yrs
    Explanation
    The disease is commonly diagnosed after the age of 65 years. This suggests that the disease in question is more prevalent in older individuals and is likely to manifest or be detected later in life. It is important to note that without further context or information about the specific disease being referred to, it is difficult to provide a more specific explanation.

    Advanced symptoms of AD include?

    • A.

      Confusion

    • B.

      Irritability

    • C.

      Mood swings

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All the above
    Explanation
    The advanced symptoms of AD include confusion, irritability, and mood swings. These symptoms are commonly observed in individuals with advanced stages of Alzheimer's disease. Confusion refers to a state of disorientation and difficulty in understanding and processing information. Irritability refers to easily becoming annoyed or agitated. Mood swings refer to sudden and extreme changes in emotions. Therefore, all of the above symptoms are seen in advanced stages of AD.

  • 4. 

    The complications of AD disease include?

    • A.

      Complete loss of speech

    • B.

      Lack of vision

    • C.

      Tumors

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Complete loss of speech
    Explanation
    The complications of AD disease can include complete loss of speech. Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects cognitive functions, including speech and language abilities. As the disease progresses, individuals may experience difficulties in finding words, forming coherent sentences, and eventually lose the ability to speak altogether. This is due to the degeneration of brain cells and the accumulation of plaques and tangles in the brain, which disrupt communication pathways. While AD can also lead to other complications such as vision problems and an increased risk of tumors, the complete loss of speech is a significant and common complication of the disease.

  • 5. 

    The causative factor(s) of AD include:

    • A.

      Excessive production of pituitary hormone

    • B.

      Abnormally folded A-beta and tau protein in brain

    • C.

      Decrease in Tryptophan levels

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Abnormally folded A-beta and tau protein in brain
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Abnormally folded A-beta and tau protein in brain." This is because the accumulation of abnormally folded A-beta and tau proteins in the brain is a key characteristic of Alzheimer's disease (AD). These protein aggregates form plaques and tangles, which disrupt normal brain function and lead to cognitive decline and memory loss. Excessive production of pituitary hormone and decrease in tryptophan levels are not directly implicated as causative factors in AD.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    AD risks include?

    • A.

      Glaucoma

    • B.

      Brain tumor

    • C.

      Hypercholesterolemia

    • D.

      Night Blindness

    Correct Answer
    C. Hypercholesterolemia
    Explanation
    Hypercholesterolemia is a condition characterized by high levels of cholesterol in the blood. It is considered an AD risk because it can lead to the buildup of plaque in the arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. High cholesterol levels can also contribute to the development of other cardiovascular conditions. Therefore, it is important to manage cholesterol levels through lifestyle changes and, if necessary, medication to reduce the risk of these ADs.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these diet(s) help reduce the risk of AD?

    • A.

      Atkins Diet

    • B.

      Keto Diet

    • C.

      Mediterranean Diet

    • D.

      Paleo Diet

    Correct Answer
    C. Mediterranean Diet
    Explanation
    The Mediterranean Diet is known to help reduce the risk of AD (Alzheimer's Disease). This diet emphasizes the consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and healthy fats like olive oil. It also includes moderate amounts of fish, poultry, and dairy products, while limiting red meat and processed foods. The Mediterranean Diet has been associated with various health benefits, including improved cognitive function and a reduced risk of developing AD. Its focus on nutrient-rich foods and avoidance of unhealthy fats and processed foods may contribute to its positive effects on brain health.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The following can reduce the onset of AD

    • A.

      NSAID medications

    • B.

      Intellectual activities

    • C.

      Medical marijuana

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Engaging in intellectual activities has been shown to help reduce the onset of Alzheimer's disease (AD) by keeping the brain active and stimulated. NSAID medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, have also been found to potentially decrease the risk of developing AD due to their anti-inflammatory properties. Medical marijuana, specifically compounds like THC and CBD, has shown promise in reducing inflammation and protecting brain cells, potentially slowing down the progression of AD. Therefore, all of the mentioned options - intellectual activities, NSAID medications, and medical marijuana - can contribute to reducing the onset of AD.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The life expectancy of AD patients is

    • A.

      3 yrs

    • B.

      5 yrs

    • C.

      7 yrs

    • D.

      10 yrs

    Correct Answer
    C. 7 yrs
    Explanation
    The life expectancy of AD patients is 7 years. This means that on average, individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease can expect to live for approximately 7 years after their diagnosis. It is important to note that this is an average estimate and individual outcomes may vary. Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects memory, thinking, and behavior, and ultimately leads to a decline in overall functioning. The progression of the disease and its impact on life expectancy can vary depending on various factors such as age, overall health, and the stage at which the disease is diagnosed.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A celebrity who was affected by AD was:

    • A.

      John F. Kenedy

    • B.

      Ronald Regan

    • C.

      Margaret Thatcher

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Ronald Regan
    Explanation
    Ronald Reagan is the correct answer because he was a celebrity who was affected by Alzheimer's disease (AD). Reagan, the 40th President of the United States, was diagnosed with AD in 1994, several years after leaving office. This neurodegenerative disease gradually affected his cognitive abilities, leading to memory loss, confusion, and other symptoms. Reagan's battle with AD helped raise awareness about the disease and its impact on individuals and their families.
