Hello,

People often associate Alzheimer’s with forgetfulness and misplacing items in the house, but new research suggests there are other signs that may indicate the onset of Alzheimer’s.

For most people, smelling food encourages appetite. Losing your sense of smell could go hand in hand with a loss of appetite, resulting in weight loss. Sometimes these slight signs may go unnoticed, so it’s important to pay close attention to your elderly loved ones to gauge whether they are showing signs of Alzheimer’s.

We hope you enjoy this month’s issue of expert reviewed articles, sharing more information about new studies indicating warning signs.
