Alzheimer's is a disease characterized by the degeneration of nerve cells in several areas of the brain. It causes loss of cognitive function, such as memory, language, thinking and behavior. The common symptoms of Alzheimer's include depression, memory impairment, loss of inhibitions, and problems with thinking and reasoning. It is usually diagnosed by performing physical exams, blood tests, brain imaging, and mental status and neuropsychological testing. According to the results, doctors prescribe different medications to alleviate symptoms. Alzheimer’s drugs influence the functions of neurotransmitters, the chemicals involved in carrying messages between nerve cells in the brain.
Diabetes, obesity, heart diseases and high blood pressure (BP), in confluence with sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy dietary patterns and smoking, are some of the factors known to increase the chances of developing Alzheimer's disease. An increase in the prevalence of these ailments and lifestyle choices among the masses, coupled with the rising geriatric population, represents one of the key factors driving the market growth. Furthermore, the leading pharmaceutical companies are focusing on the development of drugs that prevent the disease and provide long-lasting improvements in cognitive functions. The market growth is further supported by the expansion of telehealth services and the growing traction of online pharmacies. These platforms have enabled disease diagnosis and drug delivery in remote regions.
