Early diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's disease are essential for patients to maintain the highest levels of cognitive and functional abilities, according to Lakhan and colleagues. To facilitate early diagnosis and treatment, ongoing initiatives in the United States and Europe aim to identify precursors associated with Alzheimer's disease (eg, environmental and genetic risk factors, alcohol use disorders, poor-quality sleep, gut-brain links). In addition, early intervention strategies (eg, physical activity, ChEIs combined with mental exercises, experimental therapies) are used to prevent or delay the deterioration of cognition in patients with Alzheimer's disease.
