Hi doctor,

My dad is 82 and has a loss in his memory. Our doctor reported him as an Alzheimer patient (G1). Is that curable?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Unfortunately, there is no cure for Alzheimer's disease as yet.
  • All one can do is to take adequate precautions to prevent worsening of quality of life due to the memory loss and disorientation.

Thank you doctor,

How about stem-cell therapy and ozone therapy?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • No, stem-cell therapy has yet been approved for Alzheimer's disease, although research studies are in progress.
  • Ozone therapy is being used for Alzheimer's disease; however, no study has proven its benefit so far.
