Question
Posted by: gloria | 2011/01/06

My husband has Alzheimer''s and is only 51

My husband was diagnosed with AD in August 2009 before turning 50 in October. I have not been able to find any information or support as it is so unusual in someone so young. It is not hereditary and apart from the neurologist and health checks at our gp, I have no help. My concern is that the doctors diagnose and take care of his physical health but that''s where it ends. Where do I find more information of similar cases?

If you let me know where you live, I could maybe give you names of doctors with a special interest in Alzheimers in your area.
