November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month. The Alzheimer's Foundation has a free test to let you know if you should follow up with a doctor.
NEW ORLEANS — Every three seconds someone in the world develops a case of dementia.
The estimated cost of that brain illness is a staggering $1.3 trillion.
But you can lower your risk by knowing the risk factors, ways to prevent brain decline and by taking a free memory test.
Stephen Melancon has to mentally multi task daily. As the WWL-TV News assignment manager, he's the logistic guy, keeping track of all the story pitches coming in, what's getting covered, and at every moment where all of the camera and reporter crews are, in case there’s breaking news. So, when we needed someone to take the live memory test for our story, he volunteered.
“Both my grandmother's dealt with Alzheimer's and, or dementia. So, it runs in my family. So, I'd like to know,” Melancon said.
The test is quick and easy. It takes less than 10 minutes. And it's free for adults of any age.
“Banana, sunrise, chair,” Melancon says to the test instructor. “Alright. Excellent. Please spell the word ‘world’ backwards,” she asked him.
The confidential memory test is given virtually by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, year around.
“Memory screenings are something that everybody should get. Just as you get regular screenings for your cholesterol, or your blood pressure, there's different types of cancer screenings that we undergo. It's important to get a check up from the neck up too,” Chris Schneider, Communications Director for the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America said.
After Stephen came up with 24 words starting with a "C" in 60 seconds, and 18 types of animals, he got his score.
“So, you got an overall score of 41, which is a great score. The way this works is there is a threshold of 23, and you score well above that,” the tester explained to Stephen.
The Alzheimer’s Foundation says being proactive when it comes to brain health is important. So, early detection of impairment is vital.
“Because it gives you a greater opportunity to start medications sooner, to help slow the progression of some of the symptoms when they're most effective, it affords you greater opportunity participate in a clinical trial, it allows you to start different therapeutic intervention sooner. It also gives you a greater say in developing your care plan,” Schneider said.
But early screenings are also good because you could find the memory change is related to something treatable. Some of those are:
For long-term brain protection:
Two-thirds of people with Alzheimer's are women. Studies show estrogen is the master regulator of the female brain, playing a role in energy, immunity, cell growth, and communication. Early natural, or surgical menopause, puts women at an increased risk for dementia earlier in life. One study showed women on non-oral HRT, like patches or implants or injections, had a substantial decline in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and multiple sclerosis. HRT is most protective when started early, even in perimenopause.
The Alzheimer's Foundation has already screened five million people, but they commonly hear a reason for avoiding the test.
“There's some fear there in terms of if they have a problem, they don't want to know,” Schneider said.
“Today's date is November 14, Monday 2022,” Melancon answers in the screening.
So for now, Stephen has a memory baseline for a comparassion for his annual tests.
The Alzheimer's Foundation also has support for caregivers.

A £50 blood test that diagnoses a potentially deadly heart muscle inflammation could be available within a year, scientists have said.
The researchers said this test would help identify those with myocarditis – inflammation of the heart muscle that can often be fatal – and get them early lifesaving treatment.
The test is based on research published in the journal Circulation, which showed that T-cells – which are a certain type of white blood cells – express a molecule called cMet in the blood, which is an indicator of myocarditis.
Professor Federica Marelli-Berg, British Heart Foundation professor of cardiovascular immunology at Barts and the London, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), said: “Early intervention is crucial when treating myocarditis as, in some cases, it can be only a matter of weeks between the onset of symptoms and development of heart failure.
“But without a diagnosis doctors can’t offer their patients the right treatment.
“We think that this test for myocarditis could be a simple addition to the routine blood tests ordered in doctors’ surgeries.
“When viewed in combination with symptoms, the results could allow GPs to easily determine whether their patients have myocarditis.
“While we still need to confirm these findings in a larger study, we’re hopeful that it won’t be long until this blood test is in regular use.”
Myocarditis usually occurs following a viral infection.
While some people have no symptoms, in others it can cause chest pains, palpitations and shortness of breath.
Myocarditis is a difficult condition to diagnose as symptoms are often mistaken for other conditions.
It is estimated that one young person dies suddenly every week in the UK due to previously undiagnosed myocarditis.
The incidence of myocarditis is approximately 1.5 million cases worldwide per year.
The current gold standard method for diagnosis is a heart biopsy – which is invasive and risky and can sometimes still miss signs of the condition.
For the study, funded by the British Heart Foundation, the researchers compared blood samples from several groups of patients, including 34 diagnosed with myocarditis.
Findings showed patients with myocarditis had significantly increased levels of T cells with cMet on their surface compared to other groups, the researchers said.
The team said its work adds to the evidence that myocarditis is an autoimmune condition.
Tests on mice showed that blocking cMet with a widely available drug reduced the severity of their myocarditis – which the researchers also want to investigate further.
Professor Sir Nilesh Samani, medical director at the British Heart Foundation, said: “Myocarditis is a notoriously tricky condition to diagnose and sadly some patients will suffer irreversible damage to their hearts because of the lack of accessible diagnostic tests.
“This blood test could revolutionise the way we diagnose myocarditis, allowing doctors to step in at a much earlier stage to offer treatment and support.
“It would also reduce the need for the risky, invasive tests currently used, saving the NHS time and money and freeing up vital resources.”
