Alzheimer’s Risk Genetic Screening
The number one risk factor for the development of Alzheimer's is genetic. Research has identified genetic mutations that increase the risk of developing this disease.
Why it’s important to screen for Alzheimer’s risk
- Alzheimer’s is a global health concern.
- In 2018 Alzheimer’s became the number one killer of Australian women and it’s estimated that 131.5 million people will be living with Dementia by 2050.
- Your genetics is the best way to assess your risk. Genome-wide association studies have identified the genes that increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
- World leading Alzheimer’s researchers know that it is what you do 20-30 years before the onset of symptoms that are the most important. Read Prof Ralph Martins and Hamid Sohrabi
- If you know early in life you have the high-risk genetic Alzheimer’s genes you can be proactive and adopt interventions to reduce your risk of developing the disease, long before symptoms appear.
