A Time for Hope
We’ve learned so much about Alzheimer’s disease in recent years, and new disease-modifying treatments are finally becoming available. Each advancement in diagnosis and treatment brings renewed hope and optimism to those with or at risk for Alzheimer’s disease, as well as their family, friends and the medical and research community.
Reframing the Diagnosis
Today, instead of “watch and wait” until symptoms appear, our ALZpathDx diagnostic blood test can identify Alzheimer’s disease years before symptom onset. This means that you and your healthcare provider can proactively work to take measures to slow or even prevent the progression of the disease.
Advancements in Science
Our understanding of Alzheimer's disease has dramatically changed over the past two decades. The importance of using biomarkers (blood tests) to diagnose Alzheimer's disease has the potential to transform patient care.
Advancements in Care
Along with early detection, significant advancements in patient care management are allowing those with Alzheimer's disease to live longer, fuller lives. By connecting healthcare providers and patients to promising research studies, educational resources, and treatment options, no one will face Alzheimer's disease alone.
Benefits of Early Diagnosis
The power of knowing earlier can lead to better patient outcomes. The availability of accurate and accessible early diagnostic tools, provides individuals with a path to answers. There has never been a more hopeful time in the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease than now.
Is ALZpath Right for Me?
Early Alzheimer's disease detection and diagnosis is now possible, but testing might not be the right choice for everyone. Before moving forward with testing, you should carefully consider the implications of a positive Alzheimer's disease diagnosis.
Knowledge is power, but it also may feel like a burden. You can find support from those close to you. Sharing your concerns with a spouse or partner, adult child, sibling or close friend is an important step in your path.
