There’s Alzheimer’s all over my mom’s family, and she has one copy of the gene for early onset, though she’s 77 and doesn’t have it. My daughter has Ds, and I have a mild form of dementia from MEcfs/Post Viral Syndrome, similar to (if not the same) what happens in Long COVID. I haven’t been tested yet for Alzheimer’s, but I’m sadly aware that my daughter will very likely begin to develop it around 30. The genes for Alzheimer’s are located on that chromosome that is duplicated in Ds.
