Simple blood test
New studies suggest that a simple blood test could be accurate in diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease. As alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia a test like this has long been sought out. Over 5 million people in the United States alone suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is currently diagnosed through a series of memory tests and evaluation of thinking skills that are sometimes inaccurate. Other alternative forms of testing can be very invasive or costly such as spinal taps and brain scans, this is why diagnosis through simple blood test would be a great improvement.
