Early and careful evaluation and diagnosis is important because many conditions can cause dementia-like symptoms, some of which are treatable or reversible. Potentially reversible conditions include depression, adverse drug reactions, metabolic changes, and nutritional deficiencies. The earlier an accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is made, the greater the gain in managing symptoms and allowing the person to take part in planning for their future.
