The Signs Dr. Oz Says He Missed That His Mom Had Alzheimer's
The television host talked about his mother's diagnosis.
Dr. Mehmet Oz has revealed that his mother has Alzheimer's disease.
“I’m feeling guilty because I completely missed the signs until fairly late in the process,” Oz told People.
After Oz's father died last February, he said he now realizes there were subtle changes in her demeanor.
“If the right word was, ‘You look beautiful today,’ she would use, ‘You look pretty prettier today.’ I missed those clues,” Oz said.
Oz said there are other signs to look out for if you suspect your loved one has early-stage Alzheimer's, including confusing time and place, misplacing things and trouble with visuals.
Oz revealed he was tested in the wake of learning about his mother's diagnosis and he too has one of the genes for Alzheimer's.
“That was shocking,” he said. “I guess you don’t expect it."
