Alzheimer’s is a normal part of aging

Although we’ve already highlighted this myth, we want to debunk it, as well. Dr. Krystal L. Culler, DBH, says that the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease could actually start in your mid-twenties. So you don’t have to be in your sixties to develop Alzheimer’s.

The disease can install anytime—however, the risk increases as you age. Still, the disease doesn’t affect the elderly alone. Nesochi Okeke-Igbokwe, MD, points out they have patients with early-onset Alzheimer’s, the symptoms manifesting in people in their 30s.

So, please don’t assume that Alzheimer’s disease solely affects the elderly.
