To make a diagnosis, your healthcare provider will conduct a physical exam. They carefully evaluate your symptoms. While this condition happens due to a gene change, no genetic test can detect it or predict it.
You may also receive:
- Blood tests.
- Imaging scans such as MRIs or CT scans to look for diseased parts of your brain.
- Neuropsychological testing to assess brain function and memory.
- Cerebrospinal fluid tests to evaluate Alzheimer’s disease-related changes or autoimmune abnormalities.
