University of Florida Says More Testing Needed, but Simple, Inexpensive Test Works
In a recent post, we tried to sort out some of the myths surrounding Alzheimer's, especially as those misunderstandings apply to other forms of dementia or, in some cases, just normal old absent mindedness.
One thing that isn't a myth: Doctors have very few reliable ways to determine who has Alzheimer's early in the progression of the disease.
