How to use the Doctor is IN

This new feature of TheFilipinoDoctor.com displays a switch panel on your log in page.
On the center of the switch panel, you will find the switches for IN and OUT.

To set your availability for the day, click or tap on either the IN or OUT panel on the switch that you find on your log in page.  This will automatically set all the switches corresponding to every schedule you have for the day.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the day. 

To set your availability for week, click or tap on the link under the panel that reads Set your availability for the week.  This will open your clinics and schedules on the lower part of the current page.  You can now individually set to IN or OUT each of your schedules for the entire week.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the current week. 

All settings for both day and week will reset to “blank” after the day or week is over.

Thank you!

Overview

Common Name/Other Name: AD, Alzheimer's, Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease, named after German physician, Alois Alzheimer, is a form of degenerative disease of the brain that causes a gradual loss of memory or dementia in an individual which affects proper judgment and ability to function well in an environment. This also includes difficulties with language skills, thinking, problem-solving, and learning new information.

Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia. It is considered as a slowly progressive brain disease which causes brain cells to die. Alzheimer's disease can be classified as early-onset or late-onset. Elderly people 65 years and above are more likely to develop Alzheimer's (late-onset). Only a few cases of Alzheimer's occur in people who are in their 40s or 50s. If this occurs in such age group, it is known as early-onset Alzheimer's.

  • Depression
  • Apathy
  • Anxiety
  • Confusion, disorientation
  • Agitation
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Mood/behavior changes
  • Social withdrawal
  • Impaired communication
  • Poor judgment
  • Difficulty speaking, swallowing, and walking

Commonly Prescribed Drugs

These drugs are used to treat dementia or memory loss in people with Alzheimers disease. It does not cure Alzheimers disease, but it may improve the persons memory, attentiveness, and the ability to function in an environment. Rivastigmine is also used to treat dementia or memory loss in persons with Parkinsons disease but also does not cure the disease itself.

Memantine is used to treat the symptoms of Alzheimers disease. It acts by reducing abnormal activity in the brain, thereby, reducing memory loss and thinking problems. Memantine may improve the mental functions of a person with Alzheimers disease, however, this does not cure the disease.

Ginkgo biloba improves blood flow to the brain. It also functions as an antioxidant. Studies have shown that it can help boost memory and cognitive speed, thus, it can help with memory problems caused by dementia or Alzheimers disease.
