Good for you! You are being proactive, which we all should be. People with a family history need to be even more alert.
Thanks!

Yes, I was in to see my gerontologist yesterday (to volunteer for Alzheimer's research projects) and he told exercise is the best forms of prevention.

I'm 58 and am in process of getting baseline information on my current state of health so my progression into the disease (should I get it) may be tracked and perhaps prove useful to science one day.
