Accurate Alzheimer’s Test in 5 Minutes

Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy, Health Coach - June 10, 2009

  • Researchers claim a new self-test is able to accurately detect Alzheimer’s disease in five minutes. 

The British Medical Journal published a new self-administered test called “Test Your Memory” (TYM). Researchers state that it is far more accurate than any other screening test currently used to detect Alzheimer’s disease. The test takes only a few minutes to complete and can detect even mild cases of the disease.

Accurate Alzheimer's test in 5 minutesAccording to researchers, "A score above 42 ... correctly excludes the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease on 97 percent of occasions."

The TYM was able to detect 93 percent of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, while another test, used for the past 30 years, detected only 52 percent of patients.

The test might be skewed because it’s designed for people living in the United Kingdom. In the U.S. you should change the “prime minister” question to “president”. Several of us will lose a few points on the question asking the year the First World War began.

We should first note that the results of this test might be skewed because it's designed for people living in the United Kingdom. For example, the "prime minister" question should be replaced with a "president" question in the U.S.

Natural products, diet and lifestyle can have positive impact on Alzheimer’s if started early enough. I will use this test with my clients that are concerned about their memory.
