Early Detection of Alzheimer’s possible through simple blood test

Alzheimer’s disease is a growing concern as the population ages, and new technology is helping to diagnose the condition at an early stage. The amyloid test works by identifying protein deposits in the blood that accumulate in the brain and damage nerve cell communication, leading to the disease.

Prof. David Tana, a neurology expert, emphasizes the importance of early detection in guiding drug treatment and lifestyle changes to delay disease progression. Alzheimer’s is currently the leading cause of dementia in old age and is projected to triple by 2050, affecting many individuals in Israel.

The new amyloid test is available for anyone over 18 who has been referred by a doctor for cognitive testing. The cost of the test is NIS 3,450 and can be combined with additional tests for specific drug treatment or genetic prediction of the disease. Most private health insurances in Israel now cover the test, and it is expected to be subsidized by health funds soon.

In addition to information on the Alzheimer’s test, there are various resources and links provided on the website, ranging from wedding planning to event workshops to cooking recipes. Users can explore topics from writing services to web hosting to sports forums, offering a diverse range of content for different interests and needs.
