I'm sorry you've waited so long for a response. I just saw your plea. If you'll go to my site, review the parts that interest you and especially look at the video section entitled, 'Early Onset Alzheimers', that will give you a start. For more complete information, please follow the links in the 'z Link' section of my site. Thank you and continue to be kind. www.alzheimersinhomecare.com
In can, but this would be considered rare.
Early onset Alzheimer's disease runs in families. In other words, it's genetic. There is a genetic test available if you suspect early AD (did your brother, sister, mother or father get AD in their 40's?). I would recommend a consult with your family physician if you are concerned about this.
Yes. Alzheimers does not discriminate nor does it care about age. Although it is considered rare, Alzheimers tends to be genetic or runs in the family. I knew someone who was in their early forties who had early onset of Alzheimers but his mother had it early on as well.
The youngest case of familial Alzheimer's I'm aware that we've seen in Central Ohio was a young man of age 24 at OSU Hospital.
