Unfortunately, there’s no specific exam or test that will confirms that you have Alzheimer’s disease. The only thing your doctor can do is make a judgment on whether Alzheimer’s is the more than likely the cause of your symptoms based on the information you provide and results of various tests that can help clarify the diagnosis.
Tests – Your doctor will perform a physical exam, and is likely to check your overall neurological health by testing your:
* Muscle tone and strength
* Ability to get up from a chair and walk across the room
* Sense of touch and sight
