How is Alzheimer’s Diagnosed‪?‬ Alzheimer's Disease Podcast

    • Medicine

The first case of Alzheimer's disease was diagnosed in the early 1900s via autopsy. Science has come a long way since then, and in the not-too-distant future, we may be able to tell if someone's at risk before they even develop symptoms. In the second episode of the Alzheimer’s Podcast, we explore the latest diagnostic methods and hear from people and their loved ones about how they coped with the shock of diagnosis.
