The U.S. National Institute on Aging named the early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

It is noted that memory loss, confusion, and difficulties in performing routine activities may indicate the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

According to experts, the most common sign is forgetting recently received information. It is specified that people who do not suffer from the disease, later manage to remember the forgotten information.

Experts noted that people with Alzheimer’s disease may lose track of the days and seasons, and sometimes they may forget where they are and how they got there. Difficulties with daily activities include problems with tasks that patients have previously been doing for a long time. For example, patients may forget the route to a place they went to every day for several years.

Earlier, Roman Buzunov, president of the Russian Society of Somnologists, professor, M.D., honored doctor of Russia, said that sleepwalking in adulthood can be a symptom of Alzheimer’s disease as well as various tumors. “If sleepwalking suddenly developed in adulthood, and it was not before, that’s a rather serious situation,” Buzunov noted. According to the specialist, it is necessary to examine the person and exclude serious pathologies.
