Ep 2: How is Alzheimer’s Diagnosed?

Ep 2: How is Alzheimer’s Diagnosed?

The first case of Alzheimer's disease was diagnosed in the early 1900s– but only after the person had died, and doctors were able to do an autopsy. Science has come a long way since then! There are several tests available now. And soon we may be able to tell if someone will develop Alzheimer's disease before they even develop symptoms. In this episode, we learn about the latest tests. And we hear from people and their loved ones about how they handled the shock of diagnosis.
