About Our Alzheimer's Risk Assessment Test

The Alzheimer's Risk Assessment test is a genetic test that can provide insight into your potential risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, a debilitating neurodegenerative disorder, by assessing the presence of the Apolipoprotein E4 variant. The ApoE gene has several variations, the most common of which are ApoE2, ApoE3, and ApoE4. Each person inherits one ApoE gene from their mother and one from their father. The ApoE4 allele is associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's, while ApoE2 is associated with a decreased risk.

Here are some reasons why you might consider getting an ApoE Alzheimer's Risk Assessment test:

  1. Family History of Alzheimer's Disease: If you have a family history of Alzheimer's disease, especially in first-degree relatives (parents or siblings), you may be at a higher risk. Knowing your ApoE status can provide some insight into your own risk.
  2. Early Intervention and Lifestyle Changes: While there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's disease, early intervention can help slow the progression of the disease. If you are at a higher risk, you may be more motivated to make lifestyle changes that have been shown to improve brain health, such as regular physical exercise, a healthy diet, good sleep hygiene, and mental stimulation.
  3. Medical Management: If you are at high risk, your healthcare provider may suggest more regular screening for early signs of cognitive decline, or discuss potential preventative measures or treatments that might be suitable for you.
  4. Personal Peace of Mind: For some people, knowing their genetic risk can provide a sense of control and allow them to plan for the future.
