Answer by indyrm03
Alzheimer’s is genetic but that doesn’t imply you or your mom will have it. My grandma just died of Alzheimer’s in January. Her aunt and uncle (they were sister and brother) had Alzheimer’s but no one particular else had it.

I hope I never ever get Alzheimer’s. I spent the last 5 many years caring for my grandma. It was very difficult functioning with her when she did not don’t forget. It was heartbreaking to see her as soon as brilliant mind, dwindle to nothing at all :’(!!!!

Online Memory Test

    What take an online memory test?:

  • Again, it must be reiterated that forgetfulness is something that people usually ignore, but it is often the first sign of Alzheimer's disease.
  • An online memory test gives a rough estimate of how good a person's memory is. Most of these tests can be are free and can be completed in under 30 minutes.
  • A low score on a memory test may indicate that a person has a memory problem.
  • it is important to note that these tests are not meant to be diagnostic. Only a physician can determine whether a person has Alzheimer's disease.
  • There are two main types of online memory tests, visual and verbal. A verbal test gives a person a sequence of words to remember. A visual test gives a person pictures or numbers to remember.

Many people would have found that they have Alzheimer's disease earlier if they would have taken an online memory test. Alzheimer's disease is a condition that causes the brain cells to deteriorate. As a result of the lost brain cells, a person will experience a decline in mental function. Other symptoms of Alzheimer's disease include: depression, anxiety, stubbornness and social withdrawal. A person with Alzheimer's disease may also have the tendency to wander and get lost.

Alzheimer's disease most often occurs in people who are in their 40s and 50s. However, it is important to note that it is possible for people who are younger than 40 to develop this condition. Researchers have also found that people who have certain illnesses such as high blood pressure and diabetes are also at an increased risk for developing this condition. Additionally, women and those who have a family history of Alzheimer's disease are more likely to develop it.

The symptoms of Alzheimer's start off mild and then get worse as the condition becomes more advanced. Because the symptoms of this condition are initially mild, they can easily be overlooked. For example, a person may attribute his or her forgetfulness to getting older. That is why people who are becoming increasingly forgetful should consider taking an online memory test.
