Study highlights early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease other than memory loss
Tuesday 17 May 2011
A study suggests that “more than half of people who develop Alzheimer’s disease before age 60 are initially misdiagnosed because they exhibit problems other than the memory loss that doctors normally check for.” The study found that initial symptoms of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease include changes in behaviour, language and vision.
The study was carried out by Dr. Albert Llado, Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, Spain and colleagues. It was published in the journal Neurology.
