I accidentally saw some online forum in UK as well as in Yahoo. In the forums, someone discussed if Asperger's may cause Alzheimer's later on. Usually if one is not diagnosed with Asperger's as a child and then the person will/may be diagnosed with Alzheimer's in older age. People with Asperger's might not be caught with it as a child in the old times because it may not be obvious for some people. People with Asperger's can function normally with self-centered mind and accomplish a lot. They are smart, not stupid. With the way they focus, they could be a good professor or scientist or a genius. Their handicaps on the social interaction or narrow interests can make them self-centered. The family actually suffers more due to the self-centered focus.
Does anyone here know about the link between Asperger's and Alzheimer's?
