On World Alzheimer’s Day we asked Kim Henderson, a clinical psychologist at the German Neuroscience Center in Dubai to write about the psychological impact of a diagnosis and the years that follow.  Alzheimer’s disease is one of more than 400 types of dementia and the most common.

Physicians at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi are leading calls for women to take charge of their heart health and recognize abnormal symptoms.

Compulsive shopping disorder – also known as oniomania – is a way of changing or avoiding emotions. And while some of those who were prone to compulsive shopping in the past will have spotted their urges during lockdown, others won’t have been so lucky. Isolation and access to online stores, apps and home delivery will have exacerbated them. And as the UAE continues to come out of lockdown and a sense of normality returns, the initial euphoria...
