Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, comprising over 65% of dementia cases. More than 5,000,000 Americans live with AD, and there are over 500,000 new cases of dementia each year. DISCERN™ helps to mitigate the risks of misdiagnosis. Are you a candidate for this test?

Definitive and Accurate Answer
One of the many benefits of a DISCERN™ test is that it provides a definitive diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. It reduces misdiagnosis when in reality, you could be experiencing another form of Dementia.
Results in 6-12 Weeks
A lab report with the test results will be sent to your healthcare provider. Depending on how your skin cells grow, your healthcare provider should expect a report within 6-12 weeks.
The current testing methods available, such as brain imaging and spinal fluid tests, are invasive and have low-accuracy results. On the other hand, DISCERN™ simply requires a small skin sample taken by a certified healthcare provider using a pre-packaged, sterilized testing kit.
If your memory loss is caused by another condition other than AD, then ruling it out early helps to find the real cause.
