Answer: Dear Renee,

The symptoms you mention are similar to those of the first stages of Alzheimer's Disease. Common symptoms of this disease include:

- Mild forgetfulness
- Trouble remembering recent events, activities, names
- Misplacing items
- Personality changes
- Losing interest in activities that were previously enjoyed
- Difficulty learning new information or performing task that require some thought

In order to diagnose Alzheimer's, a doctor usually performs tests, physical exams and goes through family history.

Certain conditions sometimes contribute to Alzheimer's such as depression, anemia, thryoid disease, vitamin deficiency, brain tumor.
