Five million Americans have Alzheimer's disease with a new diagnosis being made every 72 seconds, and millions more are worried (due to mild memory loss) or at risk (due to family history). Although experts agree that early diagnosis and treatment are essential, many people — and even their doctors — don't know where to turn for authoritative, stateof- the-art advice and answers to their questions. The authors provide pertinent information including: The best tests to determine if this is — or is not — Alzheimer's disease; the most (and least) effective medical treatments; coping with behavioral and emotional changes through the early and middle stages; gaining access to the latest clinical trials; Understanding the future of Alzheimer's.
