HEART & ALZHEIMER

I have heart disease and I have ICD,3 leads.This may sound like a
dumb question,but can ALZHEIMER interfere how the brain function
along with my ICD?

I know of no association between an ICD and the development of  Alzheimer's disease.  Likewise Alzehmer's disease would not affect the function of the AICD.
