Medication For Alzheimer’s Prevention
New Hope For Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease With Medication
Alzheimer’s disease has long presented serious problems for older Californians and their loved ones. Over half a million Californians, 55 and over, are living with the disease – accounting for one-tenth of all Americans with Alzheimer’s. According to the California Alzheimer’s Disease Program, this number is expected to nearly double by 2030, growing to over 1.1 million. Among Latinos and Asians living with the disease, the number is expected to triple within that timeframe.
Health Insurance Options For Californians

It was nearly impossible to escape the news last autumn and winter about the many difficulties uninsured Americans had obtaining health insurance via the Affordable Care Act (commonly known as Obamacare). However, many Californians did actually complete the process and obtained coverage. According to a recent Reuters article, it appears most of those who were successful will be looking at an average premium increase of only 4.2 percent in 2015 (less than was anticipated last year).
Good news for those insured.

While aches and pains are nothing new to those of us who are getting older, the sudden sharp pain that is experienced during a leg cramp is not pleasant. While most cramps in the calf, thigh and foot are caused by sitting, standing on hard surfaces for extended periods of time, wearing uncomfortable shoes or high heels, dehydration, and medical conditions such as diabetes or edema, sometimes it’s your medication that’s the problem.
