REVEALED: The Earliest Sign of Alzheimer’s?!
Alzheimer’s isn’t curable.
But the earlier you catch it, the better your chances of slowing down the disease.
The problem is that once most people are diagnosed, the disease is already pretty far along.
Thankfully, there’s good news.
A new study has just identified the earliest sign of Alzheimer’s. And an earlier diagnosis means earlier—and better—treatment.
Here’s what you need to know to find out if you’re at risk.
The hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease is the buildup of toxic proteins in the brain called beta-amyloid plaques. They disrupt cell function and ultimately kill your brain cells.
The problem is that your brain has to be basically overrun with them before major symptoms of severe cognitive impairment show up… and by then, the disease is already pretty far along.
You can be silently accumulating these toxic proteins for years without ever knowing it. And that’s unfortunate because you’re missing out on an opportunity to get ahead of the disease.
That’s why I’m excited about a recent study published in the journal Biological Psychology.
Researchers studied 292 patients who were “amyloid-beta negative” (which means they didn’t have the levels of amyloid-beta to qualify as having Alzheimer’s) and did not have dementia.
What they found was that those who had lower cognition at the beginning of the study had a much higher risk of progression to “amyloid-beta positive” – meaning they were at a greater risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
This study shows us that cognitive impairment—no matter how subtle—should be taken seriously because it could be your earliest warning sign of dementia.
This does NOT mean that if you’re experiencing senior moments or even mild cognitive impairment that you’re going to end up with Alzheimer’s.
What it does mean is that if you’re experiencing these types of symptoms, simple, non-invasive testing could identify your Alzheimer’s risk.
And that will give you the best possible chance of staying ahead of the disease.
If you’re worried about your cognition, talk to your doc about taking a cognitive ability test.
