Hi XXXX, Thanks for using XXXXXXX

For diagnosis you can consult your board certified physician for initial evaluation and may require to consult neurologist later based on his evaluation. You may be required to get some radiological investigations done for diagnosis.

For now you need not to worry about Alzheimer's disease until you are diagnosed and consult your physician for further management.
