Is There A Relation Between Asperger And Alzheimer's
Not known.: If you mean asperger syndrome, this is a form of autism characterized by impaired social interaction, and repetitive patterns of behavior. The latter manifestation can be easily confused with other mental disorders, like schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Alzheimer's is a subtle form of dementia with memory and function loss as the main symptoms.See 1 more doctor answer
Lack of empathy: I agree with my colleague that narcissistic personality disorder and alzheimer's dementia are very different conditions. But as an alzheimer's patient sinks deeper into illness, s/he can lose empathy for others. This can be very difficult for family members or other caretakers who want appreciation. Some might call the patient "narcissistic" at that point, but this not a correct diagnostic term.See 1 more doctor answer
Not aware: I am not aware of any such relationship. Based on what I know about both, I also can't see any reason why there would be any relationship.See 2 more doctor answers
No, but can mimic: Low sodium levels can cause symptoms that mimic dementias like alzheimer's, and can worsen cognitive function in people who actually do have alzheimer's. Hyponatremia is a "treatable cause" of delirium -- or relatively acute onset of confusion, disorientation, memory dysfunction, etc associated with a medical cause. But it is not the same as alzheimer's disease.See 1 more doctor answer

How long aspergers: Aspergers disorder is considered a life long condition. However, with learning social pragmatic skills and reduction of anxiety, individuals often seem more like those with non verbal learning disabilities as they get older. Key is to learn social pragmatics and how to control anxiety, either with cognitive behavioral training or with the help of medication.
OASIS;MAAP: Usually, patients, family and friends can benefit from the support, advice, education and guidance of established organizations and associations. Oasis;maap is an association worthy of use. Their website is http://www. Aspergersyndrome. Org, and they can be contacted at 12196621311.
Aspergers worry: An integral part of having aspergers disorder is a very high anxiety level and rigid approach to life. Excessive worrying can be a debilitating condition. Cognitive behavioral therapy and involvement with social pragmatics groups may help develop a more resilient approach to thinking.
Autism Spectrum D/O: You are being described by this comment, hopefully from a mental health professional, as having elements of what used to be called a pervasive developmental disorder or asperger's syndrome. This would imply interpersonal deficits accompanied by narrow obsessional interests. In the new dsm-v this is as an autism spectrum disorder. You might benefit from talking to a psychologist.
Others' guidance: Whatever Asperger's really is, it's a mix of strong assets (intellectual focus) and areas in which you'll have more difficulty than others. You'll have trouble reading body language, understanding others' feelings, learning to how to talk to others in ways that will be helpful to them and you. You may be unlikable without meaning to be. Get guidance from others, perhaps a specialist.
Psychiatric eval: Asperger's is a clinical diagnosis which depends on mostly history comprising of basically three areas: developmental delays including speech delays, social delays and stereotypic behavior (repetitive). There may be family and other developmental issues of interest. A thorough evaluation should be able to answer this question, talk to your pcp first, if needed a referral to a psychiatrist.See 1 more doctor answer

Supportive: No one can ever tell you how you should feel. At the end of the day your feelings are yours to feel. Try to be supportive if you can. I'm sure he would appreciate having you and counting on you.

Simplistic: Nobody knows what asperger's is, but the behaviors that you'll see often trouble these kids. They are often jerks but don't realize it, and find the world baffling and often terrifying. Discipline won't help but guidance and explaining kindly may help. By contrast, the real "brat" is likely to be diagnosed with "oppositional-defiant disorder" & understand the impact of his/her behavior well.
