Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's, + Dementia (ADP)
This panel examines your risk for developing neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s, dementia, and Parkinson’s. This test may provide important information that shapes the planning and decision-making process for treatment, including psychosocial counseling, research study enrollment, therapeutic treatments, and support programs. Additionally, an individual with a known diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, dementia, or Parkinson’s may want to be tested in order to determine if the cause of disease is genetic and may impact family members.
What Can This Test Tell Me?
This test may determine your risk of developing a neurodegenerative disorder. It may also show genes that play a role in early-onset Alzheimer’s. This test should be ordered by a physician and interpreted with a genetic counselor, so that all patient and provider questions may be answered.
