The COGselftest gives your physician the tools to monitor your cognitive health.
Sixty percent (60%) of people with early signs of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) go undiagnosed. That means they miss the opportunity to delay the onset of the disease with early treatment.
Early detection of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia is possible with the COGselftest. It is a simple, computer-based test that helps your physician detect early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. If early signs of AD are detected, you can potentially delay the onset of the disease for several years through preventative measures and consistent monitoring. Of people with signs of mild cognitive impairment (that is, in only one cognitive domain) 7 percent to 8 percent per year convert to Alzheimer’s.
AD develops slowly, and with early detection and treatment, it is possible to delay the onset of symptoms when treatment begins early.
You understand the importance of regular medical checkups of your heart and lungs. Why not test to ensure that your thought processes and brain function are unimpaired? It is easy, the test takes less than 10 minutes and it can be included as part of your annual wellness visit if you are a Medicare patient.
Show this page to your doctor and ask him or her if they use the COGselftest to test cognitive function. It is 20% more accurate than traditional pencil and paper tests, and is reimbursed by most insurance carriers.
