Abstract

The Alzheimer's disease is considered a progressive cognitive disorder; however, several non-cognitive symptoms accompany all stages of the disease, appearing at times before the cognitive symptoms become manifest. This article reviews the literature on non-cognitive symptoms normally related to the Alzheimer's disease, including gait and balance dysfunction, olfactory dysfunction, diabetes, pain, and psychiatric symptoms.
