Internist Questions Alzheimer's Disease

Are there early symptoms of Alzheimer's disease?

I have a family history of Alzheimer's disease. So, I think it's very possible for me to get it, too. Are there any early symptoms of the disease that I should look out for?

Yes. Early signs of Alzheimer's disease include:

1, Memory loss
2. Difficulty in concentration and making decisions
3. Forgetting things
4. Difficulty finding the right words

But these symptoms can happen in a lot of other diseases also not specific to Alzheimer's. If you have any of these symptoms, you should talk to your family doctor.
