Alzheimer’s is not just memory loss. Alzheimer’s kills.
Alzheimer's disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Alzheimer’s is the fifth-leading cause of death among those age 65 and older and is also is a leading cause of disability and poor health.
Although deaths from other major causes have decreased significantly, official records indicate that deaths from Alzheimer's disease have increased significantly. Between 2000 and 2017, the number of deaths from Alzheimer’s disease as recorded on death certificates has more than doubled, increasing 145 percent, while the number of deaths from the number one cause of death (heart disease) decreased 9 percent.
Among people age 70, 61 percent of those with Alzheimer's dementia are expected to die before the age of 80 compared with 30 percent of people without Alzheimer's — a rate twice as high. People age 65 and older survive an average of 4 to 8 years after a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and/ or dementia, yet some live as long as 20 years with Alzheimer’s disease. This reflects the slow & uncertain progression of the disease.
