Know Your Risk Factors

Manage Your Risk Factors

Healthy Lifestyle

  Just like heart disease and diabetes, "primary prevention" is as important as early detection in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders (ADRD).

ADRD is a term used to represent a group of diseases that affect cognitive function, and includes progressive neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), vascular dementia, Parkinson's disease, Lewy body disease, and frontal lobe dementia. ADRD also includes non-progressive or static disorders such as major depression and metabolic disorders, which ultimately affect cognitive function.

Aging Population

With a rapidly aging population, maintaining cognitive and physical vitality is the key to reducing personal and economic burdens on our society.

Although more comprehensive research is needed, current clinical and epidemiologic studies provide solid evidence about the relationship between risks for developing ADRD and factors that increase or decrease those risks. Incorporating such knowledge into your daily life will help you maintain your cognitive and physical vitality as you age.
