10 Warning Signs You Have Alzheimer's, Says CDC

Classic crooner Tony Bennett revealed to AARP he has Alzheimer's, a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually get worse. "Memory often changes as people grow older," says the CDC. "Some people notice changes in themselves before anyone else does. For other people, friends and family are the first to see changes in memory, behavior, or abilities. People with one or more of these 10 warning signs should see a doctor to find the cause. Early diagnosis gives them a chance to seek treatment and plan for the future." Read on to see the signs—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Have "Long" COVID and May Not Even Know It.

What to Do If You Experience These Symptoms

"Life is a gift—even with Alzheimer's," tweeted Bennett. But remember: "Memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of aging," says the CDC. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact a medical professional. "More than half of people with memory loss have not talked to their healthcare provider, but that doesn't have to be you. Get comfortable with starting a dialogue with your medical provider if you observe any changes in memory or an increase in confusion, or just if you have any questions."

Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
