    Many people who have problems with their memory, especially if they are elderly, worry that they have Alzheimer’s disease, which afflicts at least 5.5 million people in the U.S. and brings tremendous burdens to families as well.

    Now, there is a real possibility that blood tests may aid in firming up a clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, and that additional blood tests may help to determine how the disease will progress. Studies presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Los Angeles in July demonstrated the utility of various blood tests for Alzheimer’s disease.

    My response to this is to ask myself the usual question: What would I do differently if I knew? As currently no effective treatment is employed, nor is there any cure, I would do all the good health practices to prevent this and any other degenerative illness associated with older age. In other words, keep on keeping on. Just had my birthday, so I think about such things these days.
