The extent of country star Glen Campbell's Alzheimer's Disease has been documented in a new Rolling Stone article about the Rhinestone Cowboy singer.
The star's memory loss problems were diagnosed earlier this year (11), but his family tell the publication's Patrick Doyle they feared the onset of the terrible condition when Campbell was arrested and jailed for a hit-and-run accident in 2003.
And, in a new Rolling Stone interview with the singer at his home, it's clear that he's not the man he used to be.
At times coherent when discussing his career, Campbell appears confused when his Alzheimer's Disease is raised, forgetting he was diagnosed by a doctor.
He tells Doyle, "I don't feel any different at all. I haven't been to the doctors where they said, 'You got Alzheimer's. I don't even know where that came from. I haven't been to a doctor in years."
His daughter Ashley reminds him that he is "in the early stages" of the memory-robbing disease, adding, "Sometimes you'll have trouble remembering stuff."
Her comment prompts Campbell to joke, "I was trying to forget all that garbage years ago."
Reminded that his doctor diagnosed Alzheimer's, a pensive Campbell says, "Well, I guess I'll wait till it hits me, then."
His daughter also explains that her father tends to obsess on the air conditioning and towels in the family's California home, adding, "That's one thing with Alzheimer's - they get fixated on one thing."

There is hope for people with Alzheimer's! With simple dietary changes there is a way to reverse the effects of AD for many people. Why not try this while waiting for a cure! The only false hope is no hope!

alzheimer - Vitamins from the B complex seem to be the most efficient in the treatment of memory disorders. They protect the nervous system and help people to reduce stress and anxiety. Depression can also be treated by using supplements based on these three vitamins. When memory loss and the other memory disorders are caused by a deficiency of these vitamins, taking supplements based on folate, vitamin B12 and B6 will most likely solve this problem. cleansemart Analyzing the effect of folate helps we understand that vitamins improve memory. It especially helps the older people to prevent memory problems, by slowing down brain's aging. In addition, the levels of homocysteine drop when using vitamin B9 supplements. 1wallmart/product.php?id_product=535 When folate is found in deficit, homocysteine may help in the development of heart diseases and dementia. All these problems caused by homocysteine are related to memory loss.
