Memory Diagnosis

Early diagnosis of memory problems key to treatment.

People with amnesic mild cognitive impairment are usually aware that something is wrong with their memory, but they are able to compensate, so that it doesn’t affect their daily functioning. For example, they may start using a PDA, or they may designate memory tasks to someone else. Because they are so aware of it, they develop ways to check themselves.

Often, people with mild cognitive impairment develop coping mechanisms so sophisticated that only a thorough evaluation by a neurologist or psychiatrist can detect a problem. Early detection by a doctor is important, because people with the condition are at higher risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease within a few years of diagnosis. And while there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, some drugs can help slow the patient’s decline and help with symptoms, if taken in the early stages of the disease.

This diagnostic is being widely used in the United States but its price is somewhat prohibitive. In Costa Rica these prices are much lower and affordable for just about anyone and the diagnostic is very accurate.
