The number of millennials with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease is surging, report finds

Between 2013 and 2017, early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s diagnoses increased by 83% among commercially insured Americans aged 30 to 44, according to a report released by the health care insurer. That age group includes the oldest millennials.

Overall, early-onset diagnoses increased by 200% among commercially insured Americans between ages 30 to 64. That included a 50% jump among those 45 to 54 and by 40% for those aged 55 to 64.

The average patient was diagnosed at age 49.

“The results of this report are concerning, especially the increase in early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease among younger people,” Dr. Richard Snyder, chief medical officer for Independence Blue Cross, said in a statement.
