Is Alzheimer's disease a disease where genetic testing is recommended?

Offered .. sometimes. Alzheimer disease is a condition for which we have several genetic tests - apoe e4, app, psen1, & psen2. However, these tests are not used to establish the diagnosis of alzeimer disease. Instead we use them sometimes to help understand inheritance & risk, which is rather tricky. Extensive eduation & genetic counseling are very helpful, but the decision to test or not test should always be yours.
