No. There are no tests that can ensure self-diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. Moreover, there is no evidence that supports self-diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. A team of doctors conduct both preliminary and specialised tests to confirm the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. These tests study medical history, mental cognitive status and physical examination. The doctor may also conduct some diagnostic and brain imaging tests along with a neurological exam.
The reason behind this intensive diagnosis is to confirm whether a patient is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or not. The doctors begin with analysing the signs and end at studying the brain or plaques to make a final diagnosis.
You must have come across different websites that claim to make a diagnosis for Alzheimer’s disease within a few minutes. They make a diagnosis on the basis of a few questions to judge thinking, reasoning and memory. It is important to not make the results of these websites the final standings. You must meet a doctor to confirm the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.
An accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is important and the first step to ensure good treatment, support and care. This will help with educating family members and build constructive remedial plans for the future.
