Why Would I Want to Know?

Contrary to popular belief, there are many things you can do to reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s disease.  For most people, about half of your risk is determined by genetics. The other half is determined by non-genetic factors including modifiable risk factors such as diet and lifestyle.  All of us should consider reducing our risk by optimizing our lifestyle choices. These choices are especially important for those who have a higher risk based on their genetics.

  So if you are someone who would be more motivated to make serious lifestyle changes if you knew you were at higher risk, consider getting an ApoE genotyping test today!
