FOR YOUR HEALTH
Should You Be Tested for Alzheimer’s? by John Swartzberg, M.D. | March 2013 As I’ve gotten older, my memory is certainly not what it used to be. If you also feel you’ve become more forgetful, you may be tempted by the many websites and community groups offering cognitive tests for early signs of Alzheimer’s disease and other kinds of dementia—even if you’re afraid of what you’ll find out. In their simplest form, such tests ask you to remember lists of words or to solve simple problems. There are also advanced medical tests, such as brain imaging scans (notably for amyloid plaques) and genetic analyses, to help predict or diagnose different types of dementia, though these are still largely experimental. But whatever the type of test, there are good reasons to think twice before undergoing it, unless a trusted health care provider has advised it and has discussed the many potential limitations and risks with you. Besides questions about the accuracy of the tests, it’s not at all clear that people would benefit if dementia could be diagnosed early. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, which evaluates evidence on medical matters for the government, says there’s insufficient evidence to determine whether the tests are accurate and beneficial. Still, some experts do recommend testing people who are starting to have cognitive problems. Among the arguments made for testing is that an early diagnosis of dementia could allow you and your family to prepare financially, practically and emotionally. Screening can also lead to the diagnosis of types of dementia or other cognitive impairment with treatable causes, such as certain thyroid problems, depression, vitamin
SEMI-ANNUAL BRIDGE LUNCHEON Mr. Caldwell, Benefactor Get out your red, white, and blue and let’s party and have fun on Friday, July 5, 2013, 11:30 am at the Downtown Center. Get your bridge partner and sign up with your bridge group leader. Have your 2013 Anaheim senior club membership card ready. Deadline for sign-up is July 1st firm. Please direct your questions to your group leader, or call Marilyn at 714-956-5072. Thank you for your support.
B12 deficiency or common medications (including some for insomnia, allergies and depression). On the con side, a bad test result can lead to worry, depression and family disruption—and in many cases, the “diagnosis” will be a false alarm. There’s no sure way to differentiate between mild cognitive impairment, which may only gradually worsen, and early dementia. And if the results aren’t kept confidential, people might lose their jobs, driver’s licenses or possibly their potential caregivers, and be unable to get medical or life insurance. Even if a test can determine that you’re at increased risk for eventually developing dementia, what can you do with that information, medically speaking? Unfortunately, there’s no proven way to prevent the disease or stop its progression. Medications for Alzheimer’s are meant only for people who already exhibit clear signs of dementia. Even then, they slow the disease for a few months at best—and they’re expensive. Not surprisingly, some companies that make the drugs advocate wider screening for dementia. The same is true of many makers and marketers of dietary supplements and other questionable (or downright fraudulent) treatments for memory problems. We urgently need a clearer understanding of dementia (Alzheimer’s in particular), better diagnostic tools and, of course, effective treatments. Even more, we need preventive measures. Further research is necessary before burdening patients and health care providers with screening tests of dubious reliability and unproven benefits.

Club Member of the Month Sheila Portsmouth Sheila was born in the Midlands (central area of England) in the town of Coventry, in the county town of Warwickshire, England. The town is on the River Avon, 11 miles south of the city of Coventry. Her fat her was fr o m Lancashire. She has a sister, Peggy, who is five years older and lives in Henderson, NV. During WW II, Shelia graduated from high school. Coventry City was bombed and demolished during those years. Every evening from 1943-45, Sheila and her family would sleep in the air raid shelter when German V-1 and V-2 rocket bombs were dropping from the sky. After high school, Shelia went to work for the English General Electric Company and worked for a manufacturing group producing coils for telephones. At GEC she met her husband to be, Arnold, a tool and die maker. After they were married, as British Commonwealth Citizens, Shelia and Arnold moved to Canada, where her sister Peggy was living. There they began to raise a family and had a boy and a girl. Shelia has three granddaughters, and five great grandchildren. Then Shelia followed her sister again, and moved the family to California where Arnold found work again as tool and die maker. Shelia went to work for Rankin’s Department Store in Fullerton, where she sold Elizabeth Arden cosmetics. Shelia and Arnold liked to travel and took many cruises to interesting locations all over the world. This included returning home to England to visit relatives and touring parts of the UK they did not get to see while living there. Shelia enjoys traveling with ASCC members on various trips. Happily married for 65 years, Arnold passed away three years ago. Shelia joined the ASCC Club when it was located in another building. She has fond memories of the friends she has made over the years. She has been involved over the years in a number of classes doing various arts and crafts projects. Currently, Shelia is the Club Hostess Chairman and manages and schedules the hostess volunteers.
“Hearing Better Now” An elderly man was having hearing problems and went to see a specialist. The doctor fitted him with some hearing aids that brought his hearing back to full strength. After a few weeks the man came back to make sure the new equipment was working properly, which it was. The hearing specialist said, “It all seems perfect. Your family should be delighted you can hear everything now.” “Oh no,” the man responded. “I haven’t told any of them. I just sit quietly, listening carefully. I’ve changed my will four times.”
Inexperienced Hunters Joke Two inexperienced hunters went hunting in the woods. Before long they got lost. “Don’t worry,” said the first hunter, “I heard that when you’re lost you should fire three shots in the air that someone should hear you.” They fired three shots in the air and waited a half hour. They tried again another three and nothing happened. Finally they decided they will try it once more. “This better work,” said the second hunter nervously. “These are our last arrows!”
Senior Tennis Players Join us on Tuesdays, Thursdays and/or Saturdays at 7:30 am at Pearson Park on courts 5 and 6. We rotate, and everyone gets to play.
COME JOIN US! Grandkids Say the Funniest Things My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, “Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?” I mentally polished my halo while I asked, “No, how are we alike?” “You’re both old,” he replied. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, “62.” He was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, “Did you start at 1?” A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather’s word processor. She told him she was writing a story. “What’s it about,” he asked? “I don’t know,” she replied. “I can’t read.” When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, “I’m not sure.” “Look in your underwear, Grandma,” he advised. “Mine says I’m four to six.”

FOR YOUR HEALTH
Five Ways to Lower Your Stroke Risk Every year, about 140,000 Americans die as a result of a stroke. Strokes are also the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. You can reduce your risk by controlling your blood pressure and cholesterol, losing excess weight, not smoking and getting regular exercise. But diet matters, too. In addition to cutting down on salty foods, here are five other study-based steps that may help reduce the risk of stroke. These new studies add to the growing evidence that a plant-based diet—with some fish and a little alcohol—is not only good for your heart, but for your brain as well. 1. Eat More Citrus Women who consumed the most citrus were less likely to have an ischemic (clot-related) stroke than women who consumed the least, according to data from the well-known Nurses’ Health Study, reported in the journal Stroke. The researchers attributed the benefit to compounds in citrus called flavanones, which may reduce inflammation and improve blood vessel function. Other substances in citrus, including potassium, may also play a role. 2. Eat More Apples and Pears, Too This advice comes from a Dutch study, also published in the journal Stroke. People who ate the most whitefleshed produce (at least 6 ounces a day, excluding potatoes) had half the risk of stroke over 10 years, compared to those who ate the least. Apples and pears are rich in substances known as flavonoids, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Other white fruits and vegetables, such as onions, mushrooms and cauliflower, may also be protective.
DO YOU QUALIFY FOR FINANCIAL HELP FOR PRESCRIPTION DRUGS? Extra help from Medicare sav es you money, lowers your insurance premiums, deductibles and co-pays. To qualify, the income savings’ limits are: • Single: Monthly income $1,300 & Savings $11,900. • Married: Monthly income $1,750 & Savings $12,970. Call Council on Aging; 1-714-560-0424 for information. Or call the Downtown Center: 714-765-4510; make an appointment for the 2nd & 4th Mondays.
3. Get Enough Magnesium A Swedish analysis published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that for every 100-milligram daily increase in dietary magnesium, there was a 9 percent drop in stroke risk. (The recommended daily intake is 320 milligrams for women, 420 for men, and most people fall short.) Many studies have linked dietary magnesium to lower blood pressure and reduced cardiovascular risk, but those using supplements have had inconsistent results. The best sources are leafy greens, whole grains, nuts, beans, seeds and fish. 4. Drink a Little Alcohol (Not a Lot) In another study in the journal Stroke that looked at women from the Nurses’ Health Study, light to moderate alcohol consumption (up to one drink a day) was associated with a lower risk of all strokes. No benefit—and possibly increased stroke risk—was seen at higher amounts. Alcohol, in moderation, may help prevent blood clots and has a beneficial effect on cholesterol. But, as other studies have shown, high amounts can increase blood pressure and have other negative cardiovascular effects. 5. Limit Trans Fat A study of the participants in the Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study, published in the Annals of Neurology, found that those who consumed the most trans fats (averaging 6 grams a day) were nearly 40 percent more likely to have an ischemic stroke than those who consumed the least (averaging 2 grams a day). Other fats and dietary cholesterol had no effect on stroke risk. This was true even after the researchers controlled for other dietary, lifestyle and cardiovascular risk factors. Trans fats have been removed from many (but hardly all) foods in recent years.

ESTATE PLANNING CORNER A COMMONLY ASKED QUESTION AT REVOCABLE TRUST SEMINARS IS WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JOINT TENANCY AND COMMUNITY PROPERTY.
Joint tenancy has "survivorship" rights that allow the other tenant to avoid probate when one joint tenant dies. That's the good FREDLOWARY news.The bad news is that the surviving Attorney at Law tenant is only allowed to “step up” the decedents 50% interest to fair market basis, while the survivor's basis is 50% of the purchase price. A sale may result in capital gains tax. However under the new tax law just passed in 1997, the capital gains tax rate has been reduced and the homeowner is allowed $250,000 ($500,000 for a married couple) on the gain from a sale of their principal residence before any tax is due! Community property under IRS section 1014(a) allows a 100% "stepped-up" basis to fair market value when one spouse dies, and a sale will not result in capital gains tax. That's the good news, but the bad news is that community property must go through a probate court confirmation proceeding known as a spousal property petition that takes about two months and costs around $1,000 in legal fees and court costs. The better way to hold title is in a revocable trust to avoid probate and have a "written community property agreement" which under IRS ruling 87-98 issued in 1987 overcomes any joint tenancy presumptions from prior deeds and allows a 100% "stepped-up" basis and eliminates capital gains tax for a surviving spouse. Anaheim attorney Fred M. Lowary wrote this article and limits his practice to estate planning. See page 19 for more info.
