An Alzheimer's diagnosis

An estimated 5.2 million people in America have Alzheimer's disease, according to a report from the Alzheimer's Association. That includes about 5 million people who are 65 and older and about 200,000 people under 65 who have younger onset Alzheimer's.

In Kentucky, there were an estimated 80,000 people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's as of 2010, according to the report. By 2025, that number is expected to rise to 97,000.

Dr. Eme Igbokwe, attending neurologist at Graves Gilbert Clinic, said the tools to conclusively diagnose Alzheimer's early on in the disease don't really exist at this time.

While younger onset Alzheimer's between the ages of 30 and 60 can sometimes be genetic, there may not be any family history of the disease for people who develop the disease in their 60s and later,Igbokwe said.

"We do know that this is not normal aging," he said.

Younger onset Alzheimer's accounts for a relatively small percentage of Alzheimer's patients,Igbokwe said.
