Re: Will he hide it?

Thank you Nords. We've talked about it enough that I think he'll acknowledge when/if he feels like the gaps are getting worse. Right now it seems like normal "lack of focus" forgetfulness, which I'm guilty of myself. He says he won't try to hide it if it gets worse - And as you say, I'll p...

Dr. Richard Isaacson - FAU Center for Brain Health

Hi all, does anyone know the status of Florida Atlantic University's new Center for Brain Health at the Schmidt College of Medicine in Boca Raton? I believe it was due to open this year but I can't seem to get much information other than that. It's my understanding that Dr. Isaacson left Weill Corne...

Re: Will he hide it?

Thanks Nancy and as before, that answer is super helpful: In fact, he's having a CAC scan today! His brother who is also 3/4 and seeing a functional medicine doctor, persuaded DH to get a number of different tests: We got a lot of the basics (as also recommended on this site) and most things look pr...

Will he hide it?

My husband is 3/4 with a strong maternal history of AD (mother and 2 of her male siblings, don't know about older generations). He also has regular phlebotomies for hereditary hemochromatosis (so iron levels are more or less under control); and is at genetic risk for CAD (although he's quite fit, an...

Re: When to Seek Diagnosis

Thank you, NF52. The memory issues are barely perceptible at this point and he'd be quick to point out that I forget things too, which is true - But I know as far as my own memory issues go, it's more of an attention and problem (i.e. not paying it), and so I try to look at him and listen when he's ...

When to Seek Diagnosis

Hi, writing on behalf of my (3/4 and gs293 "tricarrier") 60-yo husband (with his permission) who is rarely in front of a computer. We don't THINK there is any MCI as of yet, or nothing worse than e.g. what I'm manifesting ("normal" 3/3) at age 67, hopefully it's just attention-re...

Iron Disorders and AD

Hi all, I thought a new thread on this topic might be useful to myself and others. Husband Phil who is 3/4 soon to visit hematologist for formal diagnosis of hereditary hemachromatosis and subsequent treatment. I am the researcher, "health manager", as I'm on a computer much of the time (w...

Re: Plenty of Exercise: Need carbs

Thank you all - We have the Iron Disorders Institute's book and will have our first visit w/ the hematologist soon. I have a gut feeling (fed with a lot of ongoing research) that iron played a heavy hand in his mother's (among other relatives) cognitive decline - She never saw a doctor, was clearly ...
