Lecture: 11th Annual CHNC, Mild Cognitive Impairment

Since 2000, deaths from heart disease have decreased by 14%, while deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have increased by 89%. Alzheimer’s disease is the third-leading cause of death in the USA. There is a major distinction between just memory loss and a wider range of cognitive abilities and decline.

In this lecture, Dr. Hoffman discusses how to differentiate between mild symptoms of cognitive decline versus those of advancing Alzheimer’s dementia. Only 5% of all incidents of Alzheimer’s disease are considered genetic in origin; the rest are caused by lifestyle factors over which we can exert significant control.

Dr. Hoffman also talks about the different subtypes of Alzheimer’s disease, many of the 150 potential risk factors for their development and the lifestyle, nutritional, hormonal and medication interventions that can make a marked difference in patient outcomes.
