What is pre-Alzheimer's?
Like pre-diabetes, but for Alzheimer's Disease
Pre-Alzheimer's is not a diagnosable disorder and not an accepted scientific term, but it makes sense to non-scientific people.
Since clarity is the first step to results, we feel using a term that intuitively makes sense is in everyone's best interest.
45+ million Americans are currently at high-risk of developing Alzheimer's in their lifetime, including people who are currently expressing early symptoms & signs.
Below is a graph that represents this all to common path.
Who can we help?
We can help people who have preclinical Alzheimer's Disease, Subjective Cognitive Decline or Mild Cognitive Impairment
At this time we are not able to accept clients with an Alzheimer's or other Major Neurocognitive Disorder diagnosis
If you don't know where you stand, we can help you establish an accurate baseline
Preclinical Alzheimer's Disease - Starts 20-30 years before Alzheimer's-like symptoms are present. This includes people at increased genetic risk, family history or have multiple underlying conditions which could increase risk
Subjective Cognitive Decline - Is not a diagnosable disorder, however is usually when an individual first recognizes changes in memory and thinking abilities.
Mild Cognitive Impairment - (now Mild Neurocognitive Disorder - Mild NCD)
Changes in memory, and thinking abilities are now recognizable to others, but are not severe enough to be dependent on others to get through a day.
Dementia - (now Major Neurocognitive Disorder - Major NCD)
An umbrella term, which means changes in memory, behavior and thinking abilities which impair an individual's ability to function in daily life without assistance. Alzheimer's Disease is the most common form of Major NCD representing almost 70% of these cases.
Confused by all the label changes?
This report is the best explanation we've found for each different category.
So far changing the labels every few years has done more to confuse both physicians and patients than it has to get people healthier...
At MIOS Health, we don't label. We help you find an accurate baseline and guide you toward the health results you want.
