Is there any proven diagnosis for Alzheimer's disease? One of my very close relatives is 56 years old and has got memory problems and is showing early symptoms of Alzheimer's. Is it possible to arrest the degenerative growth if we start the diagnosis at this age?

Means of diagnosing AD include the following:
Clinical examination: The clinical diagnosis of AD is usually made during the mild stage of the disease, using clinical signs
Lumbar puncture: levels of tau and phosphorylated tau in the cerebrospinal fluid are often elevated in AD, whereas amyloid levels are usually low; at present, however, routine measurement of CSF tau and amyloid is not recommended except in research settings
Imaging studies: Imaging studies are particularly important for ruling out potentially treatable causes of progressive cognitive decline, such as chronic subdural hematoma or normal-pressure hydrocephalus
There are no proven modalities for preventing AD,but evidence, largely epidemiologic, suggests that healthy lifestyles can reduce the risk of developing the disease; the following may be protective
Diet....early diagnosis and treatment will surely benefit the patient in terms of leading quality life...consult good physician or neurologist they will help you
