The Great Alzheimer’s Fraud Exposed

Dear Reader,

Getting diagnosed with Alzheimer’s is a devastating and hopeless feeling.

It steals your cherished memories… personality… and eventually your freedom.

And we’ve always been told that there’s practically nothing that doctors can do.

But what you probably HAVEN’T been told is that diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease has always been a big guessing game – not an exact science.

And now that there are diagnostic tests that can be done, they’ve revealed something shocking:

Many folks diagnosed with Alzheimer’s don’t have the disease at all.

A new study is underway to determine whether using PET scans to diagnose Alzheimer’s would be beneficial.

These findings show that they’re far more than beneficial—they’re life-changing.

This ongoing study involves over 18,000 people with either mild cognitive impairment or dementia who are taking Alzheimer’s drugs.

So far, 4,000 people have undergone a PET scan to see if their brains have the tell-tale sign of Alzheimer’s: amyloid plaque.

The researchers are just one year into a four-year study, but the results are already game-changing:

  • Only 54.4 percent of patients with mild cognitive impairment had plaques.
  • And 70.5 percent of dementia patients had the plaques – about one-third did not.

Here’s why this is so important: The real sign of Alzheimer’s disease is the presence of amyloid plaque in the brain.

You can have amyloid plaques without having Alzheimer’s (although it wouldn’t be a good sign for your future), but you can’t have Alzheimer’s without the plaques.

There’s just one problem. Until recently, the only way to determine if there were plaques was in a post-mortem autopsy. That means that the vast majority of doctors diagnose Alzheimer’s strictly based on symptoms alone.

The problem is, the early symptoms of Alzheimer’s are nearly identical to problems you’d see from other conditions, like Lyme disease, depression, or even drug interactions.

Now, a PET scan can determine if there are amyloid plaques present, but most insurance companies aren’t willing to pick up the $4,000 tab for the procedure.

And therein lies the problem.

Without having the means to get a proper diagnosis, doctors are taking a shot in the dark to determine the best course of treatment for their patients.

And when in doubt? Put them on drugs!

As a result, as many as 50 percent of Alzheimer’s patients might not have Alzheimer’s at all—simply because their doctors are trying to cover their you-know-whats.

In fact, 400 physicians enrolled their patients in this study.

But AFTER seeing the PET scans, the doctors changed the plan of care for two-thirds of the patients.

TWO-THIRDS!

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, show your doctor this study, and talk to him about getting a PET scan.

Proper treatment starts with the proper diagnosis. And finding out what you really have… and getting it treated… could have a major impact on the quality of your life.

To a brighter day,
