Gender Ethnicracial And Life Span Considerations

The onset of DAT may occur at any age but is rare before age 50; the average onset occurs after age 65. Approximately 3% of men and women ages 65 to 74 have AD, and some scientists note that about 50% of those age 85 and older may have AD. The prevalence of AD doubles every 5 years beyond age 65. More females than males have the disease. It is difficult to determine if there are racial and ethnic differences in the prevalence of AD. However, a unique issue for older black/African Americans is that, contrasted with other ethnic/racial groups, they are disproportionately affected by stroke, high blood pressure, and diabetes. These diseases can increase the risk of developing AD.
