Blood Vessel Dysfunction Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease

Posted on February 13, 2016 by Disability Help Group

Alzheimer’s disease is very often debilitating, particularly at the middle and late stages. This degenerative neurological disease can prevent an individual from being able to continue working in any capacity. Social Security disability benefits may be available for those who suffer from this disease.

The American Heart Association reports that a study indicates blood vessel dysfunction, a cardiovascular disease, may be linked to Alzheimer’s. This blood vessel dysfunction may play a key role in amyloid plaque buildup in the brains of those have Alzheimer’s.

Amyloid plaque buildup is one distinct anomaly found in patients who have Alzheimer’s. This seems to build on previous research that found individuals with a number of cardiovascular risk factors were at an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

Keeping blood vessels healthy may be a critical element to preventing Alzheimer’s. It also ties into research that demonstrates cognitive benefits in exercising.

Exercise is important to cardiovascular health. With improved cardiovascular health an individual is less likely to develop blood vessel dysfunction and possibly, less likely to develop Alzheimer’s.

This study was recently published in Circulation Research:  Journal of the American Heart Association.

Whether you have been diagnosed with a severe mental or physical condition, you may qualify to receive Social Security disability benefits. A Social Security disability associate can assist you with filing your claim or appealing your claim if you have been denied.

When you are interviewing Social Security Disability representatives ask critical questions, like: how many Social Security Disability hearings do you have per month; do you understand the SSA’s POMS (the manual Social Security employees use to process claims); and, do you understand the date last insured and how it affects my disability onset date?
