A new study finds that women are more likely than men to be affected by Alzheimer's disease-both as patients and as caregivers. Three out of five people living with Alzheimer's are women, and women over age 65 have a one-in-six chance of getting the disease-compared to one-in-11 for men, NBC News reports. And when it comes to caring for loved ones with Alzheimer's, the number of female caregivers is more than double that of male caregivers.
The Alzheimer's Association finds that 20% of female caregivers drop from full-time to part-time work, compared to just 3% of male caregivers; 18% of women have taken a leave of absence to take care of someone with Alzheimer's, compared to 11% of men; and 11% of women have actually quit their jobs, compared to 5% of men
Can you recognize Peanut Butter !!!
How's this for a low-tech way of diagnosing Alzheimer's: sniffing peanut butter. Researchers at the University of Florida have discovered some merit to the bizarre-sounding notion, reports Futurity. Knowing that patients in cognitive decline often lose their sense of smell first, the researchers had patients sniff a dollop of peanut butter with each nostril separately. They used a ruler to measure the point at which people detected the odor (and to keep the other nostril closed).
The weird result: People with a confirmed diagnosis of early-stage Alzheimer's could smell it fine with their right nostril, but not their left, say the UF scientists. Generally speaking, the right nostril picked up on it 10cm before the left one. Also of note: The left-right difference is specific to Alzheimer's, and doesn't apply to other forms of dementia.
