It wasn' t all that long ago when most people, including many doctors, felt that there really wasn' t much point in diagnosing Alzheimer' s disease until later stages when symptoms were out of control, so to speak. There are many types of dementia, and so, the thought process went, if you couldn' t cure them, what difference did it make what kind it was? Besides, the only way Alzheimer' s could be truly determined was by an autopsy. Well, attitudes have changed. While we aren' t likely to see a cure for Alzheimer' s disease for years, there has been progress, especially in the area of slowing the progression of the disease.
