Perspective on Diagnosing Alzheimer's Early

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

One theme that recurs in this blog is the benefit of early diagnosis and intervention against Alzheimer's disease. Since we currently diagnose the disease, on average, in the mild to moderate dementia stages, most patients miss out on several years of treatment (and possible disease delaying effects) during the earlier stages of illness.

This topic was discussed recently on the Alzheimer's Blog at the Mayo Clinic site and I thought there were some good points made by the author of the posting, by a follow-up entry, and by some of the readers who left comments. I encourage you to check it out.
