What I Learned About Alzheimer's That Surprised Me

I was reading earlier about Alzheimer's disease. I found out that it can have an early onset, contrary to what most people think (which is that it only ever strikes the elderly.) I read about a man who was diagnosed w/it at age 30! I was pretty stunned to say the least. I'm not much older than that, and thankfully still have my wits about me. All I can say is I couldn't imagine having Alzheimer's at my age.

Alzheimer’s is scary as it is, but to get it early in life has to be terrifying!

Wow, at age 30? That's way too young! I heard it is now being referred to as Diabetes type 3....but not sure if that is hokum.

30 does seem far too young to have Alzheimer's. That would be such a sad thing to happen to someone so young.
