Unfortunately, both set of my grandparents passed away pretty young due to war and other diseases so I don’t know my family history. I’ve noticed some problems with my mother and her memory in the last few years, but she is in her late 50s and still functioning.
Thankful to find this forum and resources such as Dr. Bredesen’s work.

Though you have youth on your side, it's never too early to learn as much as you can and make changes now for you and possibly your mother's future. This website is indeed a great resource to learn more about Alzheimers, the APO genes, current research and so much more. This
is a great resource to get started with to help you understand how to navigate around the site, search topics, post replies and so much more. All of this information can be overwhelming so please don't hesitate to ask questions and comments.
