Jamie Tyrone was forty-nine years old when she learned she had a genetic predisposition toward Alzheimer’s disease.
Her genes translated to a 91% chance she would contract the disease during her lifetime.
Painfully familiar with Alzheimer’s because of her family history and her experience as a nurse, Jamie felt as if she had a ticking time-bomb inside her, ready to go off at any moment.
After an initial bout with depression, Jamie decided to take action rather than concede defeat. She teamed up with renowned neurologist Dr. Marwan Sabbagh to write Fighting for My Life as a practical, helpful guide for those who know they are at greater risk of contracting Alzheimer’s Disease.
Dr. Sabbagh's portion of the book focuses on the genetic medical science that is currently available to the regular consumer -- and how it can be both a positive and negative thing.
Listen as Dr. Sabbagh joins Dr. Roizen to share insights from the book, as well as information on dementia and Alzheimer's risk factors and treatment options.
