CONCLUSIONS: Lifestyle subgroups of patients were determined by stress, emotional problems, and age. The groups were significantly associated with Aβ42 and diagnostic outcome. This pattern may confound the differentiation between objective and subjective memory problems. Asking about lifestyle variables, in conjunction with neuropsychological testing, could potentially identify individuals who are not likely to have objective memory impairment and guide interventions.
