All of 5 Brothers with early onset Dementia: Is it genetic?
My husband has Dementia signs for 3 years he is now 60 years old. He had 3 brothers with dementia all died by age 65 with or because of Dementia. His living brother is now 62 and has symptoms of dementia but not diagnosed.
My husband is the youngest of 8 children. He also has three sisters one has dementia the other two appear to be ok. However one of the sisters have two sons with dementia. One son is 64 and in the end stage of diagnosed Alzheimer’s. The other is 62 with dementia.
My question is…. is this a family gyne that causing dementia? Or is there a hidden illness with dementia being a symptom of that illness?
