(OK, Iris, make it clickable.)

This is a report up of a study that says that woman compared to men, equal age,  education etc. fare much worse than men with AD.

 No numbers were given and the conclusion also included a review of literature, so it was hard to get a handle on. Women, all things being equal, begin with better language skills and end up worse off in five specific cognitive areas.

No theories were put forth as to why this was so.


Most of us , in our limited experience, would have no idea if this is true. 

Myriam and any others with a lot of experience with AD groups, what is your reaction?

Lisa, Mimi posted this study on the Younger Onset board and there was a nice discussion about it there.
