Hi to all Just a general discussion point really, don't know what other people think on the topic............ The new blood tests that are (potentially) going to be used for early diagnosis of AD; good or bad? The reason I ask? Well, it the news reports it claims that by finding the proteins found in sufferers of AD, treatment can be started early to stabilise symptoms. But on how would this be done if NICE won't licence the medication for use until moderate stages? Or are they thinking of other medications? Obviously if a cure was found then this would be more than fantastic, but otherwise would it not just cause worry as you wait for the symptoms to start? Secondly, if we can be tested for AD, would this have any influence over financial things such as life insurance, mortgages etc, especially those of us with relatives who have developed early onset AD, as companies may not be so eager to sell to us if we are found to be a high risk. Or am I talking nonsense? Don't wish to cause any bad feelings but would be interesetd in others' views. Regards, Kate x.
