#391 Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementias – What We Know and What We Can Do? Interview with Dr. Barry Gordon

Smithsonian Associates, The Not Old Better Show, Inside Science Series

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. I’m your host Paul Vogelzang, and this is show number 391. Today’s show is sponsored by Native.

As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Inside Science series, we’re speaking today to Dr. Barry Gordon. Dr. Barry Gordon is the founder of the Memory Clinic at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in Baltimore. Dr. Barry Gordon is also a nationally recognized expert on memory and memory disorders. Today, Dr. Gordon is here to shed light on these debilitating conditions and he’ll provide guidance on what you need to know to make the most informed decision, and take active steps if you spot these conditions—whether personally or in a family member or friend.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, worldwide, 50 million, that’s 5 zero million people are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative brain disease and the most common form of dementia. Dementia is not a specific disease. It’s an overall term that describes a group of symptoms.

Dr. Barry Gordon Gordon addresses when you should be concerned that someone may have early dementia—even yourself—and when you should raise the alarm. Dr. Gordon details the steps you should expect your doctor to take to find out what is wrong. The current treatments available for Alzheimer’s and other dementias, including drugs and behavioral treatments, such as enriching activities, and the treatments and preventions that may be on the horizon

Please join me in welcoming via internet phone to The Not Old Better Show, Dr. Barry Gordon.
