G30.1: Alzheimer disease with late onset
You have a dementia disease.
With dementia, the brain is no longer able to carry out various tasks so well. As a result, your memory will gradually get worse. You are finding it difficult to memorize new things. You may no longer be judging everyday situations so well. You sometimes possibly do not know where you are. The disease makes it difficult to deal with everyday life. It is often difficult to remember the right word for something. One’s personality may also change. For example, you may become very distrustful, or have the feeling that people are stealing your property.
Proteins are being deposited in your brain. These proteins are damaging your brain. As a result, your brain is no longer able to carry out its various tasks so well. This disease is called Alzheimer’s disease.
In your case, the Alzheimer’s began after you were 65.
