Online Alzheimer's tests get "F" from experts
Many online tests for Alzheimer's disease are inaccurate, unscientific, and unethical, according to a study presented at the recent Alzheimer's Association's International Conference in Boston.
If you have concerns about your memory, talk to your doctor. Diagnosing Alzheimer's disease requires a range of tests and an expert to interpret and explain the results. Online testing can be harmful for many different reasons. For example, they can trigger fears about the results or lead people who notice memory problems to buy ineffective dietary supplements or delay contacting a doctor.
