Is ALZpath Right for Me?

Alzheimer's disease testing is a personal decision. It is best made in consultation with your support team and physician. Many of the questions and concerns you may have are shared by others. Here are some things to consider when determining if ALZpath is the right choice for you.

Is ALZpath Right for Me?

Worrying about changes to memory?

If you feel your memory is worse than your peers or has gotten worse in the last 5 years, it is time to turn your worry into action. ALZpath provides a more comprehensive way to give you the answers you need.

Are others concerned about your memory?

Sometimes family and friends can notice changes in your memory and thinking that you can’t see yourself. If the people you care about voice their concerns, it’s time to take action and learn more.

Recent abnormal memory test?

Memory tests, often called cognitive assessments, can provide a brief but important screen of various memory and thinking functions. Many factors can lead to poor performance on a memory test, but a memory test alone cannot tell you if you have Alzheimer’s disease. ALZpath provides clear answers.

Diagnosed with Mild Cognitive impairment (MCI)?

People with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) due to Alzheimer’s disease can benefit from a variety of strategies to potentially slow or stop the progression of the disease. ALZpath works with you to identify your options and choose the best course forward. We are your guide and partner along this path.

Family history of dementia?

Studies show that if you have a close relative who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, your risk increases by about 30 percent.

Known Genetic Risk (APOE4) for Alzheimer’s?

Risk genes for Alzheimer’s can increase the likelihood of developing the disease but do not guarantee it will happen. ALZpathDx may give you added information about your likelihood of Alzheimer’s disease and clarify questions you may have.

We will be active partners with you and your healthcare provider. You may be able to slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s. Don’t wait. Take control today.

Why might I choose not to undergo testing with ALZpath?

It’s natural to not want to know what the blood test might show. Family members may worry about what your results mean for them. There are potential risks of discrimination as there remains a stigma around Alzheimer’s disease, even for those without symptoms. Someone with a high likelihood of Alzheimer’s disease may not be eligible for long-term care insurance.

What else should I consider before deciding about testing with ALZpath?

It is important to consider how knowing your results may impact your emotional well-being. Results will help you make decisions about your future, but it’s important to understand that they may also cause undue worry if they indicate a high likelihood for Alzheimer’s disease. We help you prepare for any possible result.

Finally, knowing the cost is always important. ALZpath services are billed directly to your insurance carrier, the same as any other tests or services that are ordered by your healthcare provider. A co-pay or deductible may apply according to the terms of your policy.
