Understanding Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias
Dementia is a term used to describe any condition where a variety of different brain functions such as memory, thinking, recognition, language, planning and personality deteriorate over time. Dementia is not part of normal ageing. Everyone gets more forgetful as they get older – that does not mean that they have dementia. The most common type of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, but there are several other types. There is a lot of myth and misinformation about dementia. This book is intended for anyone who has, or may be worried that they or their family and friends have, dementia. It is also for people who live or work with someone with dementia. We hope that by reading this book you will have a better understanding of what causes the illness and how it is diagnosed and treated.

Acne: Answers at Your Fingertips
Acne is the most common chronic skin condition of adolescents. It tends to begin at puberty and affects almost all teenagers to some extent. For most people, it tends to disappear by the time they reach their mid-20s, but some people may continue to have acne into their 40s and 50s. Although extremely common, this condition can be very distressing and unpleasant. The authors have great experience of managing acne in their patients and this book offers a mass of practical advice and information about dealing with the problem. It also casts light on the many myths and misconceptions about the potential causes and cures. This book answers hundreds of real questions, providing: Positive, practical advice on every aspect of living with acne - how to cure it, how to hide it, and how to deal with hard-to-manage episodes Medically accurate and easy to understand answers to real questions from people with acne and their families Information on the causes of acne and advice on the best ways to treat acne and care for your skin Answers to all the questions you may feel embarrassed to ask your doctor Details of organisations, helplines and websites for advice, products and help-groups Questions from the book include: I've started getting acne spots. How long do they last? What is the difference between a whitehead and a yellowhead spot? What causes acne? My forehead is all spotty but I don't have acne anywhere else. Why is this? I am 29 and have just started to get spots. Is this the same as teenage acne? What should I tell my doctor? What are the different types of treatment available? How long will it be before I can expect to notice an improvement? Is it true that dabbing toothpaste on a spot can help clear it up? The doctor has prescribed Dianette for my acne, but I am only 15 and my mum will go mental if she thinks I'm on the pill. I don't even have a boyfriend so why am I on a contraceptive? Are there any spots that I can squeeze? I read in a women's magazine that isotretinoin (Roaccutane) can cure acne - is it really that good? My friend had some very cold spray treatment to her raised scars. What was this? What is the best way of covering my acne scars? I'd quite like to see a homeopath for my acne. Is it very expensive? Do I have to stop all my acne treatment if I get pregnant? I want to use a facial wash. Which is the best one? Why is something called non-comedogenic? What exactly does this mean? Can I still use sunscreen even though I have acne? What is the best skin-care routine? My doctor has suggested that I see a psychologist. What use will that be? I want my skin to be better, not to talk about it. I think I am going to have to start paying for my prescription. Is there any way I can reduce the cost?
