Alzheimer’s Disease

Ask the Doctors

Q: I am concerned that the number of people with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia is increasing. I have also heard that the popular cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins may decrease the chances of getting Alzheimer’s. I find that I sometimes struggle to remember words or names; should I be worried, and should I ask my physician to prescribe statins?

A: You are absolutely correct about the increasing incidence of Alzheimer’s disease.
