Memory loss may be 1st sign of Alzheimer's
July 17, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Memory problems that are often dismissed as a normal part of aging may not be so harmless after all.
If you are forgetful beyond the occasional misplaced car keys, it could be the very earliest sign of Alzheimer's, according to research teams at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference.
Don't panic. This is not about "senior moments" or those small temporary lapses.
It's about real memory loss-- when the information doesn't come back to you later, not even when people remind you of what you forgot.
