Evaluating Risk Factors: Alzheimers Disease In Family Members

Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as Alzheimer's disease in family members — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

Alzheimer's Disease in close family members?
Possible responses:
→ None / don't know
→ Probably in one family member

→ Yes, in one family member
→ Yes, in more than one family member

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate Alzheimer's in family members, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as Alzheimer's Disease.  By age 80, people with Alzheimer's disease in both parents had a 54% risk, 1.5 times the risk of Alzheimer's in people with just one affected parent, and 5 times the risk of people with two unaffected parents.
