The biggest advance toward the early prediction of Alzheimer’s, Hartley says, is using PET scans to show the buildup of beta amyloid plaques in the brain. The plaques are a risk factor for the. If someone has a family history of early-onset Alzheimer’s, he or she should talk with a doctor about getting tested. A doctor may suggest meeting first with a genetic counselor.

This type of counselor helps people learn the risk of getting genetic conditions. They also help people make decisions about testing and what comes next. Brain scans: Your doctor may use one or more of these to get a closer look at your brain and how it’s working. They also can help rule out other problems like.

A quick test that tells if your loved one is at risk of Alzheimer’s disease has been devised by doctors. The 21-question test distinguishes between normal absent-mindedness and the more sinister. It’s important to work closely with your doctor and other members of your health care team to create the best treatment plan for you or the person in your care. Your treatment goals are likely to change during your journey with Alzheimer’s disease.

Make sure you understand all the available options. Do I Have Dementia? Dementia describes a wide range of symptoms associated with impairments in thought, communication, and memory that interfere with an individual’s ability to perform everyday activities. While Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, dementia symptoms can be attributed to various medical conditions.

Learning you have Alzheimer’s disease can be devastating. Working with your health care team can help you find the best strategies to manage your symptoms and prolong your independence. Alzheimer’s drugs might be one strategy to help you temporarily manage memory loss, thinking and reasoning problems, and day-to-day function.

Additional help. Your local Alzheimer’s Association can provide a list of Alzheimer’s and other dementia specialists in your area. Alzheimer’s Disease Centers (ADCs), funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), offer diagnosis and treatment services. Your brain is your body’s most important organ. A healthy brain is big, spongy and weighs about 3 pounds.

Alzheimer’s disease changes that, literally shrinking and crippling the brain. Breakthroughs in Alzheimer’s prevention now make it possible to treat Alzheimer’s before it develops into a full-blown disease. Certain people are at greater risk.

For example, a geriatrician can look at your general health, a neuropsychologist can test your thinking and memory, and a neurologist can.

  • Fantastic work and presentation. It makes perfect sense. Similar to the concept of balancing ying and yang. I am very impressed.

  • My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease 7 years ago, almost when all hope was lost due to several failed attempts in making her healthy. My desire to see her permanently free drives me into searching the internet for possible solutions which led me to a video about Alzheimer’s disease on YouTube, I met with a comment on how an herbal doctor used herbs to cured someone of Alzheimer’s Dementia. I collected the herbal doctor’s contact and reached out to him, we talked about it and he asked few questions about her physical challenges which I answered, and then he prepared the herbal medicine and sent them to me here in Tennessee with prescriptions on how to use attached, I ensured my mom took the herbal medicine accordingly and in 3 weeks of using this medication, we began to see improvement in her health and now, I am so glad to share this testimony that after 8 months, my mom is permanently healed of this horrible disease called Alzheimer, and now she is living her best life. Contact Dr. Rohan via [email protected] gmail.com you will come back for your testimony

  • These doctors never push to stop the sale of Vaccines or aluminium in food mercury in food and poison in your food it seems they only care if they get your money. Scumbags.

  • This was a great presentation. Dr. Bredesen and his research and recommended program is fantastic… He is bringing out so many facts and raises the #1 question all M.D.’s and patients should be asking-“WHY?”… But, let me add one more newly discovered finding to this topic…First, I am an M.D. and my 2 brothers were M.D.’s. My wife was an R.N. and my mother and sister were also R.N.’s…. We are all taught that vaccines are all safe and all successful and none have side-effects. My mother was the head nurse in the ER of our medical center. She was told by her bosses to get 8-9 vaccines one day to “catch up” with the newly updated CDC list of new vaccines. Within days she got “Brain Fog”…. Within weeks she was unable to answer the phone, push the elevator button or insert her key in the lock to drive or unlock the front door… Within weeks she was hospitalized and put in diapers and unable to care for herself and died from what the best specialists called the “worst case of aggressive, progressive, fatal dementia” any of them had ever seen…. They did not know what caused her rapid fatal death but said it was NOT from the 8 vaccines…It turns out that this “induced Alzheimer’s” was caused by the neurotoxic mercury molecules and Aluminum Hydroxide molecules that are the ingredients in vaccines..Now all the studies show that if there is no mercury and no aluminum in the brain that there is no Alzheimer’s inflammation and A-B formation in the brain….My 2 M.D. brothers and I and the 3 R.N.’s in my family were never taught that vaccines could cause side-effects…My 2 M.D. brothers and I were taught in medical school that vaccines were safe and effective and to just memorize which ones to inject and at what age….Vaccines have a place in public health treatments…Mandated vaccines are another issue…It would be ideal if the CDC ever actually finally did the studies to compare the outcome and health findings between vaccinated children from un-vaccinated children…I was vaccinated with all 4 vaccines growing up, as were my 2 brothers and 2 sisters in the 1950-60’s…The CDC added 4 more vaccines in the 80’s when my son was born…My active, talkative, precocious, running, climbing, coloring, and loving son had received 4 vaccines before age 2 and then was vaccine-injured by being given his 4 more, additional vaccines, all given in one day at 2 years old…He was immediately changed after the 105 fever, inconsolable crying, limp-lethargy, and diarrhea all that night….We spent the rest of his life recovering him… Then I lost my baby brother (the M.D.) at age 56 from Guillain-Barre paralysis after his flu shot..The doctors did not know why he was paralyzed but they all said it was NOT from the vaccine…The vaccine court disagreed and awarded the family a large settlement…It turns out that we (the American public) have been falsely told to ”believe” in vaccines and not question them, ever, anytime….The truth is that the government (CDC) information trying to keep us compliant and obedient seems to be actually based on lies, cover-up, and deliberate fraud from our own CDC, and then the kickbacks to the doctors for giving vaccines is a new revelation…Watch more research here at the Vaccine Support Group…. click here to find the medical truths…. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1313182338778841/.

  • As a retired nursing home administrator, I would have loved to have had this video as a tool for the families dealing with dementia in their family, and placing their family member in my nursing home.

  • I was a little surprised that you didn’t mention the increased risk for Alzheimer’s associated with obesity and Type 2. Many of the Alzheimer’s experts are even labelling it as Type 3 diabetes.

  • Why is it my son who is 25 years old who has Down syndrome, ultimately being denied the test to see if he carries the Alzheimer gene in Ontario Canada? I recently got a new physician (who just finished his residency) he took over my old doctors 40 year practice. I mentioned how I’d done some research about the link between Alzheimer’s and Down syndrome, and was shocked to discover he had never heard of it as far as he knew the only definitive way to test is to ultimately wait till they die then open the brain?! He then at the next appointment apologized and thanked me for the information, however, he said as it stands there aren’t any places locally or in Ontario who will do the test. My father & his father alike both have & had Alzheimer’s which concerns me as if its linked genetically my son may be predisposed and early intervention would be in his best interest. I will continue to research this intel I find out anything about it. Thanks for your video it was the refreshing to see people actually looking to better people with special needs to lead a more fulfilling life opposed to those who feel if they haven’t heard of it ergo it ceases to exist. I believe it’s deemed “IDIOPATHIC”?
