Atherosclerosis/Altzheimer's Disease - 3rd Post

Posted By kd on May 28, 1998 at 11:40:43:







This is the third time I have posted this question.  I also posted on April 18 and May 11, 1998.  Is it possible that neurologists do not address atherosclerosis because it is vascular and do not address Altzheimer's Disease?  If so, please let me know so I will not keep bothering you.  I may  just be expecting information from the wrong professionals.  (The Aprill 18 post disappeared after I wrote the May 11th one.)
Basically, I wanted to know if having diffuse atherosclerosis and bad carotids sets a person up for altzheimer's disease.  I am a 47 yo female.  Can a Diamox SPECT test show Altzheimer's?
Thanks.

P.S. Again, just tell me if I'm not in the right forum.
