He can solve complex math problems in his mind, even I have to try hard to solve these problems in my mind (I have PhD in physics). He can speak two languages very well and takes care of himself without a problem. His personality changed a lot and he forgot most of our relatives (those who he have not seen for a few years). Is it possible he was misdiagnosed?

john, it is quite possible that he can keep his math skills and have Alzheimer's. Not all areas of the brain may be affected. My father was an engineer who remained very sharp until the last two months of his life. He did not lose his math and inventory skills until his blood pressure and energy level dropped. His brain stopped functioning well then. His inability to complete his tax return let me know that the end was near. I am glad that he remained sharp, because he grew his greatest enjoyment from things in his mind.

A neurologist diagnosed him after talking to him and to my mother and looking at his CAT scan results.
