10 Best Ways to Prevent Dementia

Dr. Sharon Orrange - March 22, 2016

What’s New in Alzheimer Disease Treatment?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 28, 2015

There are 8 million new cases of Alzheimer disease (AD) each year—and while new headlines appear every week about potential cures, it may discourage you to know that many recent AD trials have been unsuccessful, though not for a lack of trying. In fact, there have been no new medication approvals for this currently untreatable disease in over ten years.

Is Alzheimer’s the New Cancer?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - March 21, 2014

How many deaths in the U.S. are really from Alzheimer’s? Dementia is a diagnosis that is easy to make while someone is living but to say it’s dementia from Alzheimer’s is another story, as it really takes a look at their brain tissue under the microscope to say for certain. Numbers just released show that 500,000 deaths a year, or more than a third in older adults, are due to Alzheimer’s disease. See More
