SCIENTISTS FIND EARLY SIGNS OF ALZHEIMER'S

A subtle change in a memory-making brain region seems to predict who will get Alzheimer's disease nine years before symptoms appear, scientists reported Sunday.

Disease Alzheimers

Its not surprising that patients with alzheimers show these signs so early. Most people who have lived with alzheimers patients say that they could tell early one that something was amiss. My father in law started showing signs that something as amiss before he died of heart failure. An autopsy (since suicide by overdose was suspected and insurance was involved) revealed that he had early stage alzheimers and was probably about two years away from having it full blown. Having had that experience, I think that having the ability to predict it would be wonderful. Alzheimers is such a heart breaking disease and tears the family apart.

Hope raised for new Alzheimer's approach

WASHINGTON (AP) - Some recovery of memory may be possible in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, suggests a provocative new study in mice that could help researchers open a two-pronged attack against the mind-robbing illness. The research shows a mutant protein named tau is poisoning brain cells, and that blocking its production may allow some of those sick neurons to recover.

I am going to have to show this to my grandmother and my mother. I have been telling them for a while that I thought that this was what was wrong with my grandfather, but they didn't want to listen. Now, they are noticing the things I have been noticing for several months now.

The test scan results were able to distinguish between Alzheimer's and mild cognitive impairment with a 98 percent accuracy. That would be so helpful because the not knowing what is wrong delays treatment and causes disagreements within families, as Silverjades example indicates.

Silverjade, my mother-in-law had Alzheimer's and her symptoms were very subtle for several months before she went downhill very quickly. Please keep us informed how your grandfather is doing.

Now this is interesting. How many people do you know with a poor sense of smell?

POOR SENSE OF SMELL COULD HERALD ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE: STUDY

The inability to identify everyday smells such as onions and lemons could be a warning sign that Alzheimer's disease is on its way, according to a new study.
