Sense of Smell Could Be Linked To Alzheimer's Disease

A new study finds your sense of smell could help indicate if you have Alzheimer's Disease.

Scientists say new research shows that people who had difficulty identifying certain smells could be associated with the loss of brain function.

The findings were reported at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference in Denmark this past weekend.

Researchers also say that an eye exam could help in early diagnosis of Alzheimer's.

While more research is needed, doctors say these findings are promising because it could allow for earlier treatment.
