There is no single test that proves a person has Alzheimer's. A diagnosis is made through a complete assessment that considers all possible causes.

During the medical workup, your health care provider will review your medical history. He or she will want to know about any current and past illnesses, as well as any medications you are taking. The doctor will also ask about key medical conditions affecting other family members, including whether they may have had Alzheimer's disease or related dementias.

Information from a physical exam and laboratory tests can help identify health issues that can cause symptoms of dementia. Conditions other than Alzheimer's that may cause confused thinking, trouble focusing or memory problems include anemia, infection, diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, certain vitamin deficiencies, thyroid abnormalities, and problems with the heart, blood vessels and lungs.

We will make every reasonable effort to obtain the results of your laboratory and imaging evidence. When the results of any of these tests are part of the existing evidence in your case record, we will evaluate the test results and all other relevant evidence. We will not purchase imaging, or other diagnostic tests, or laboratory tests that are complex, may involve significant risk, or that are invasive. We will not routinely purchase tests that are expensive or not readily available.

In 11.02 (Epilepsy), 11.06 (Parkinsonian syndrome), and 11.12 (Myasthenia gravis), we require that limitations from these neurological disorders exist despite adherence to prescribed treatment. “Despite adherence to prescribed treatment” means that you have taken medication(s) or followed other treatment procedures for your neurological disorder(s) as prescribed by a physician for three consecutive months but your impairment continues to meet the other listing requirements despite this treatment. You may receive your treatment at a health care facility that you visit regularly, even if you do not see the same physician on each visit.

Disorganization of motor function means interference, due to your neurological disorder, with movement of two extremities; i.e., the lower extremities, or upper extremities (including fingers, wrists, hands, arms, and shoulders). By two extremities we mean both lower extremities, or both upper extremities, or one upper extremity and one lower extremity. All listings in this body system, except for 11.02 (Epilepsy), 11.10 (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), and 11.20 (Coma and persistent vegetative state), include criteria for disorganization of motor function that results in an extreme limitation in your ability to:

  The most common misconception regarding neurological conditions is the belief that they are equivalent to mental illnesses. This is untrue. There are many cases in which memory and cognition are unaffected by a neurological condition. People affected by neurological conditions tend to become disabled in other ways, where symptoms are sometimes visible and other times invisible. The symptoms of a neurological condition are relative to the region of damage to the central nervous system.  

Neurological diseases and disorders are some of the most devastating illnesses one can suffer from; they significantly affects not only sufferers, but their families and caregivers as well.  There is an increasing prevalence of neurological conditions in older aged people, particularly dementia.  Many neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Ischemia/Stroke, are some of the most prevalent diseases in the world. Please see the list of neurological disease and disorders for other neurone, or nerve cell, affecting diseases.
