Health Tip: Diagnosing Alzheimer's Early

(HealthDay News) -- If a loved one has symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, he or she should visit a doctor for a formal evaluation.

It may be easier to control the disease if it's diagnosed early, the Alzheimer's Association says.

Here is the association's list of other potential benefits of early diagnosis:

  • Better access to treatment options.

  • Possible participation in a clinical trial.

  • More time to improve health concerns, such as obesity and high blood pressure.

  • More time to spend with family and planning for the future.
