Hello Alzheimer's Forum!
First of all, I want to express my condolences to all of you affected by this condition, and wish you the best of possible health and management of the issues going on in your/loved one's situations.
My mom has been experiencing some short term memory loss and cognitive decline for some time. (going on about 2 yrs.)
Today, we had her assessed by a neurologist who dx'd her with MCI (milld cognitive impairment)
He said that this is not necessarily progressive, and that it may or may not develop into Alzheimer's eventually. He stated about 50% of patients with MCI go on to develop AD.
Aside from this issue, mild depression and chronic Mono/fatigue, she is a healthy 78 year old, with no family history of AD.
I suppose I am seeking any further information or personal experiences with MCI that anyone can offer.
Thank you in advance, and again...the best of health management to all of you here!
