Health Tip: Diagnosing Alzheimer's Early
-- If a loved one has symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, he or she should visit a doctor for a formal evaluation.

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.
