  • Transcript

    • 1. A presentation at NAVS Summerfest 6/29/12 Stephan Esser MD www.esserhealth.com
    • 2. Exercise and Alzheimers: Exploring connections, setting goals Stephan Esser MD www.esserhealth.com
    • 3. Goals• Review the basics• Overview of the Statistics• Visit the classroom: anatomy, physiology• Review some evidence• Discuss opportunities for application
    • 4. I want you to……• Know what Alzheimer’s is• Understand the basics of Exercise• Be able to make informed decisions about your health
    • 5. Alzheimer’sThe most common form of Dementia
    • 6. Definitions• Dementia: – Latin roots: De (absence) ment-(mind) – loss of cognitive ability in a previously healthy person, that is greater then what would be expected from natural aging alone – Frequent Deficits: • Memory • Attention • Language • Problem solving
    • 7. Dementia• Types: – Alzheimer’s – Vascular – Fronto-Temporal – Dementia with Lewy Bodies – Mixed – Other: Metabolic, Vitamin Deficiency’s, Syphillis, HIV, Medication s/e’s, dementia pugilistica etc
    • 8. Alzheimer’s• 1906: Described by German psychiatrist Alois Alzheimer MD• “Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually even the ability to carry out the simplest tasks of daily living.” National Institute of Aging, NIH 2012
    • 9. Cause?
    • 10. Progression• Early: independent – Short term memory loss – Attentiveness, planning, flexibility, abstract thinking, decreased fluency and word finding• Moderate: variable – Progressive impairments in function, self care, mood• Later: dependent – Confusion, agitation, violence, bowel and bladder dysfunction, loss of appetite, require 24hr care
    • 11. Mortality Statistics
    • 12. Statistics• 5.4 mill. Americans have Alzheimer’s• 1 in 8 adults over 65 y/o• Spending: – 300% higher Medicare costs if pt has dementia – Projected thru 2050 a 500% increase in combined Medicare and Medicaid spending
    • 13. Cause?
    • 14. Outcomes Neurofibrilary TanglesBeta-amyloid plaques
    • 15. Cause?
    • 16. Risk Factors Modifiable Non-Modifiable • High Blood Pressure• Age >65 • High Cholesterol – 5 yrs = double risk • Obesity• Gender • Diabetes – Female Survival?• Family History • Smoking• Ethnicity • Head Trauma• Genetics • Exercise – ApoE-4 • Nutrition –  risk • Education
    • 17. The “graying” of America
    • 18. 2 of 3
    • 19. The Problem1:9 adults
    • 20. The Problem• High Blood Pressure: – 1 in 3 adults1:3 adults
    • 21. 1:6 adults
    • 22. Exercise• Achieve recommended levels of Exercise: – 20% of all adults >20 y/o – 13% of those age 65-74 y/o – 6% of those >75 y/o
    • 23. NutritionConsume Recommended Servings of Fruits and Vegetables: -Adolescents: 0.9% -Men: 2.2% -Women: 3.5%
    • 24. What we know• Basics of Alzheimer’s• Foundational Statistics• Risk Factors We “Ain’t doing so good”
    • 25. Treatment• No Cure• Medications: – Delay institutionalization• Symptom Focused – Behavior, incontinence, depression• Environmental
    • 26. Prevention is Essential
    • 27. Risk Factors Modifiable Non-Modifiable • High Blood Pressure• Age >65 • High Cholesterol – 5 yrs = double risk • Obesity• Gender • Diabetes – Female Survival?• Family History • Smoking• Ethnicity • Head Trauma• Genetics • Exercise –  risk • Nutrition • Education
    • 28. Exercise
    • 29. Definitions• Exercise: – movement of the body resulting in the enhancement of health and improvement of function
    • 30. Categories• Leisure time Exercise: organized sports, running, gym activities, rehabilitation etc.• Lifestyle Exercise: activity incorporated into our daily pattern of life – eg: parking in the distant portion of the parking lot rather then the first bumper, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, mowing your own lawn, sweeping the house etc.
    • 31. Exercise• Flexibility• Balance• Strength• Cardiovascular
    • 32. How could we hypothesize exercise might prevent Alzheimer’s?
    • 33. Risk Factors Modifiable Non-Modifiable • HBP/HCL/CAD• Age >65 – 5 yrs = double risk • Homocysteine• Gender ? • Obesity 78%• Family History • Diabetes• Ethnicity • Smoking 200%• Genetics • Head Trauma –  risk • Exercise • Nutrition • Education
    • 34. Benefits of Exercise•  risk of HBP/Hchol/CAD•  risk of Obesity•  risk of Type 2 Diabetes• Less likely to smoke• More likely to eat health promoting foods
    • 35. Benefits of Exercise• Obvious physiologic benefits• Cognitive value• Multi-system – Cognitive, balance, coordination, strength, CV etc – Executive, purpose, intention, goal-setting etc
    • 36. Exercise Science• Delays the onset and reduces incidence• Those who are in the top 10% of exercisers have a 250% lower risk of alzheimers
    • 37. Tough Question• Is it only for prevention?• Any benefit to those with Alzheimers?
    • 38. Exercise training for depressed older adults with Alzheimers disease 2008 “…with severe AD evidenced a clear benefit to participants in this study ““A simple exercise program, 1 hour twicea week, led to significantly slower decline in ADL score inpatients withAD living in a nursing home than routine medical care.” 2007
    • 39. "Regular physical exercise is probably the bestmeans we have of preventing Alzheimers disease today, better than medications, better thanintellectual activity, better than supplements and diet.” Dr Ronald Petersen MD
    • 40. I want you to……• Know what Alzheimer’s is• Understand the basics of Exercise• Be able to make informed decisions about your health
    • 41. What Next?• Learn more about Alzheimer’s• Identify your risk factors• Develop a preventive plan of action• Incorporate in your own life• Re-evaluate weekly/monthly• Never stop actively learning and actively living
