"This study shows that as the US population increases, the number of people affected by Alzheimer's disease and related dementias will rise, especially among minority populations", said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield. In order for people who don't have Alzheimer's symptoms to participate in studies, they'll need to be tested for some of the telltale markers of susceptibility to the disease.

But that number is estimated to increase to 13.9 million by 2060, equaling almost 3.3 percent of a projected population of 417 million people.

That's estimated to be about three percent of the population by then.

The study is the first ever to project Alzheimer's and dementia rates by race and ethnicity.

Today is World Alzheimer's Day, and the release of Dementia International's "World Alzheimer's Report" providing a snapshot of current research and future plans.

Sawai Man Singh Medical College to have a separate dementia clinic for treatment of Alzheimer's disease at its psychiatric centre in Adarsh Nagar which will be operational from Monday. The most common form of dementia, Alzheimer's disease causes the decline of cognitive function, which can leave sufferers unable to carry out daily tasks and activities.




The authors say that related dementias and Alzheimer's disease are "characterized by a decline in memory leading to loss of independence". That's followed by Hispanics (12.2 percent), and whites (10.3 percent).

In Hawai'i alone, there are more than 28,000 people living with the disease and 66,000 family caregivers.

"This study shows that as the US population increases, the number of people affected by Alzheimer's disease and related dementias will rise, especially among minority populations", said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D. Hispanic Americans are the group expected to see the largest jump in the next few decades given the trends in their population growth. A previous study published in 2015 also found that negative beliefs about growing old significantly reduced the volume of the hippocampus, an area of the brain for memory and an indicator for Alzheimer's disease.

U.S. researchers have discovered that there may be a link between an increase in symptoms of anxiety and a risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

Currently, among adults aged 65 and older, African-Americans have the highest prevalence of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, at 13.8 percent.
