Prevention of Alzheimer's when you have the Genes


Can Alzheimer's  Disease be inherited? 

You are surely wondering whether it would make sense and be useful to   take precautions to protect yourself from Alzheimer's, especially if you have a  case of Alzheimer's in your family or your father or mother has contracted  it.  The answer is unequivocal: “Yes, it  makes absolute sense to take precautions to protect yourself from Alzheimer's,  since the disease can, in large part, be inherited .'  The latest scientific studies confirm what  was in any case already known: Alzheimer's is spread through genetic  material.  The inherited genes are the   so-called ApoE4 gene and the TOMM40 gene, also called simply the 'Alzheimer's  Gene.' 

What are the  Alzheimer's genes ApoE4 or TOMM40? 

In a study published  by the New England Journal of Medicine in July 2009 it says:

                         

"People  with the Alzheimer's gene begin to have memory declines tied to aging before  they reach 60, even if they have no clinical symptoms of dementia". 

                         

The study goes on to  say that there is a number of firms which offer tests from which you can find  out whether you have inherited the Alzheimer's gene ApoE4, including: Island's  Decode Genetics' DecodeME and the 23andME Test. 

 


How great is the  danger of contracting Alzheimer's if you have these genes? 

Where the ApoE4 gene  is present, it continues, the danger of contracting Alzheimer's increases by  50%.   However, it does not necessarily  follow that you will contract Alzheimer's, though there is a very high  likelihood.

                         

A second gene, the TOMM40 gene, is also said to significantly increase  the risk of contracting Alzheimer's, as can be heard from the University of  North Carolina, USA.  Dr. Allen Roses at Duke  University points out that both the ApoE4 and TOMM40 genes are very closely  related and that if both are present together the danger that Alzheimer's will  be inherited rises to 80-95%.

Doctors usually  refrain from having patients tested for the Alzheimer's genes, however, because  a positive result causes stress.

           

However, researchers  at the University of Boston have found out that this does not quite correspond  to the truth, since according to their study, subjects who received a positive  result- i.e. the results showed that they had inherited the Alzheimer's gene-  did not show a stressed reaction.   Their  reaction was no more worried or depressed than people in the placebo group,  said Dr. Robert Green in a summary of the study.

           

Prevention is the best protection

           

Alzheimer's  researchers are agreed that prevention is the best method for avoiding the  disease- i.e. to take precautions against the disease even before it manifests   itself and/or to prevent it.

                         

The maxim that the sooner the disease is recognized, the better the  chances of doing something about it also applies to an Alzheimer's diagnosis.

             

Prof. David Snowdon is certain:
that prevention is the best protection from Alzheimer's, especially and above all if you have a case of Alzheimer's in the family.
               He says:

"By the time you  have memory problems – it is already too late, which means the disease has  already advanced. You possibly should act long time before that happens to try  to prevent it from happening.“
