New Study Warns: Dementia Misdiagnosis Rate at 37% | Dementia & Alzheimer's Weekly

New Study Warns: Dementia Misdiagnosis Rate at 37% | Dementia & Alzheimer's Weekly

Very Interesting article, since it covers both my dementias. I hate being right on this, that they do not get the diags right.

God Bless,
Joe

Joe,

I read the article and it said, "The highest level of correct diagnoses was in patients with frontotemporal dementia", which is one of your two dementias.

Also in the same publication (http://alzheimersweekly.com/) I read an article by Richard Taylor, the ALZ author of "Alzheimer's from the Inside Out"--is "Emphasize Real People Over Hit-and-Miss Research" published in May of 2008. He writes: "Many of the national and local organizations which raise money in the name of our disease have decided for us that the research for a cure is much more important . . than supporting us, responding to the fears which plague our hearts, minds and families." I think we need both, but not at your expense or the expense of my husband.
