      Can Ibuprofen help stop Alzheimer's?

      Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease and the most common form of dementia. It has been estimated that over 5.7 million adults in the United States have been living with the disease. By 2050, this number is set to reach a whopping 14 million. Therefore, there is an acute need to come up with solutions.

      Symptoms of Alzheimer's disease 

      These include memory loss, decline in behavioral and cognitive functions, reasoning impairments, changes in personality and behavior, loss of empathy, compulsive or obsessive behavior, socially unaccepted behavior, loss of visuospatial abilities and so on. As the disease progresses, patients may forget events and even fail to recognize loved ones. Beyond a point, full-time assistance would be needed.

      The cause of Alzheimer's disease is still being researched but what we know so far is that a sticky protein named beta-amyloid may play a role in the disease. The beta-amyloid is known to clump together and this creates "plaques" in the brain. These impact brain cell communication and could result in memory loss, behavioral changes, and other symptoms related to the disease.

      One of the beta-amyloid peptides, amyloid-beta 42 (Abeta 42) has been found present in the saliva and the brain. When this level is higher, such adults appear to be at a greater risk of Alzheimer's. Researchers have made a breakthrough claim that Ibuprofen which is a popular nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) can help prevent Alzheimer's in those who have been identified high levels of Abeta 42.

      Who should go for Ibuprofen?

      The onset of Alzheimer's disease is usually around the age of 65. The saliva test to check for Abeta 42 should start by age 55. If tested positive for this, it’s a good idea to take one ibuprofen tablet a day to prevent it. However, before embarking on this, it’s important to consult the doctor.
