   加拿大最新研究建议,父母辈的老年痴呆症早期诊断应从行为方式改变开始,而不是记忆丧失。轻度的行为损害被认为是正常衰老和进行性痴呆之间的过度状态。

焦虑和情绪改变过去被认为是正常衰老的表现,卡尔加里大学Hotchkiss 脑研究所医生 Zahinoor Ismail则认为是痴呆的早期表现。

卡尔加里诊所34个问题的问卷包括对家人和朋友失兴趣,容易焦虑和争斗,比较粗鲁的言论,以及爱和陌生人谈话,好像他们很熟等。

he checklist questions include:

  • Has the person lost interest in friends, family or home activities?
  • Has the person become less spontaneous and active — for example, is he/she less likely to initiate or maintain conversation?
  • Does the person view herself/himself as a burden to family?
  • Has the person become more anxious or worried about things that are routine, like events, visits?
  • Does the person feel very tense, having developed an inability to relax, or shakiness, or symptoms of panic?
  • Has the person become agitated, aggressive, irritable or temperamental?
  • Does the person hoard objects when she/he did not do so before?

According to Ismail, MBI will require more research and routine testing on the brain while patients are in this state before it will be integrated into more clinics.
