Hey Nancy, that's great! Are you able to share your particular "protocol"?
GeorgeN, yes, I've always wondered how much damage is done to the brain before noticeable symptoms materialize. All the more to proactively implement prevention as early as possible! If I really think about it, I always suspected something was amiss with my mom well before truly noticeable symptoms began to show, that is, perhaps at least 10 yrs in advance of "diagnosis". My dad even claims my mom had memory issues when she was YOUNGER!
Remind me, is short term memory the 1st to go/tell tale signs of advancing AD? At 50 yrs of age, is it normal to have some loss of long term memory items? This is why I asked about some type of standardized cognitive/memory tests I can take to assess my current status on some type of medically recognized scale?
