Alzheimer's and MS

Out of pure interest does anybody know of someone who has unfortunately Alzheimer’s and MS?

It’s just on breakfast this morning they said that a new test had been discovered to recognise people who could potentially get Alzheimer’s from an extra protein in the brain seen in the eye. Could it be that someone with MS has not got this extra protein so therefore will not get Alzheimer’s as I have never known someone with both?

interesting post – I’ve often wondered if being blessed??? with m.s. precluded us from having some other condition.

Read recently that no one with Downes Syndrome had ever developed m.s.
