I'm not an expert on Alzheimers and dementias but I would definately stick with the neurologists diagnosis. Many doctors think that AZ and dementia is one and the same but the fact is there are several types of dementias. I'm not sure if the dementias can eventually turn into AZ or not but I do know that AZ accounts for 50-70% of cases. Has there been any other testing done for your mom?
