Sometimes I have difficulty remembering names, numbers, and tasks. Could this be stress related, and are there early symptoms of alzheimers that can exhibit themselves before you are actually diagnosed with it?

Memory Loss
I cant offer much advice due to not knowing your general background i.E age but I will do my best. I had never heard of memory loss being stress related untill I saw you post and so decided to check it out. This is a link you might find useful http://www.Fi.Edu/brain/stress.Htm#stressm emory

i dont really know much about alzheimer's so I cant really comment on that. The only advice I can give is if you are really worried then go and see your doctor.

Finally some memory improvement techniques: practice these regularly and your memory performance will increase dramatically.

Use association when trying to memorize objects. For instance group the difficult to remember task or object with somthing which you dont need to remember, like places in your home or a very farmiliar route. Imagiane them at memorable points and when you think of the easy to remember area you will remember the object placed there.

I dont have the time to write out a full list so use this link http://www.Mindtools.Com/memory.Html

hope this helps

Re: Memory Loss?
The early symptoms of alzheimer's disease include forgetfulness, loss of concentration,etc.

Many people expect increasing memory loss as they age, but impaired memory has more to do with stress, according to a mcgill research project.

Phosphatidylserine plays a role in neurotransmission, may support brain function and boost memory and is therefore important in this memory supplement. The acetyl group that is part of acetyl-l-carnitine contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is required for healthy cognitive function and promotes enhanced memory and cell to cell communication. Huperzine a also helps maintain acetylcholine levels. Ginkgo biloba is included in this memory supplement and is used to enhance peripheral circulation to the brain and is thought to work with siberian ginseng to support good general well-being.

Please note that this is not to be taken as medical advice. If you are seeking treatment, please contact your healthcare professional.

It could definitely be stress.

If it doesn't get better with time then I'd try some Chinese meds.

like those 3:

Cure Memory Loss With Ginkgo Biloba
Ginkgo Biloba is the oldest living tree specie with its leaves as one of the most widely studied botanicals of today.
Ginkgo is highly recommended all over Europe as a treatment for dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
Studies show that it improves the cognitive functions of a person as well as his daily living activities. Ginkgo is available in capsule, tablet, tea, and liquid extract form. However, you have to seek medical advice on how to regularly it as a treatment for memory loss.

Ge Jie Da Bu Wan remedies For Memory Loss
This Chinese medicine made from the different tree roots that are found in China helps boost the qi (energy) and yang (functions of the organs in our body).
It also helps in nourishing the blood. For best results, take 3 capsules of ge jie da bu wan 2 times a day.

Gui Pi Wan for Memory Loss Treatment
This Chinese herbal formula is believed to be effective in treating poor memory and concentration.
Gui Pi Wan is made of 100% pure and authentic Chinese herbs of high quality. Traditional preparations and procedures are combined with modern pharmaceutical ways of extracting the active ingredients from the herbs to create pills and tablets.

Some ideas
Hi Paul,

You might want to do a google search on new ways they diagnose alzheimer's. I heard there might be a new method where they take a sample of your blood and thru your analysis they can determine some risk factors.

I do think it could be stress related, however, since when I am stressed I forget certain things (and I am young).

Also, have you been given mmse test? (Mini-mental status examination)

Hope that helps..

I've have found much research on Glutathione and Alzheimer. There are numerouis research papers and studies on the causes of Alzheimers. Science does not fully understand the causes of Alzheimers disease.

There is growing evidence that life time exposures to toxins, diet, genes, and oxidative stress are all suspects. If fact, they may be co-conspirators i this greatest of all thievery, the stealing of our memories.

The national institute of aging has funded research to help better understand the genetic aspect of Alzheimers.

If all these things are at initial stage then no need to be panic. It can be due to stress. But if you realize your problem at a big level then you should consult a doctor.
