Hello,

Not having the ability to identify familiar odors such as smoke, coffee and raspberry can be a sign of memory impairment, which could lead to Alzheimer’s since the disease affects parts of the brain critical for recognizing odors.

Two recent studies suggest that a cost effective “sniff” test could soon be available at doctor’s offices. Results from these quick tests could help with early detection of patients with Alzheimer’s and either suggest the patients needs treatment or further examinations.

Before a cure is identified, this type of testing is imperative in treating the disease.

We hope you enjoy this month’s expert-reviewed articles.
