Stop vascular disease risk factors early to prevent alzheimer's disease bayarea motherhealthcare

  1. 1. New study found that vascular disease risk factors, such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol, may raise the risk of Alzheimers disease.The good news is that treating those conditions lowered the risk of Alzheimers. Chinese researchers followed 837 people over age 55 with mild cognitive impairment, which is often a precursor to Alzheimers, for five years. During that time, 298 developed Alzheimers, while the others still had mild cognitive impairment but had not progressed to Alzheimers. People who were treated for all of their vascular disease risk factors were lesslikely to progress to Alzheimers disease than those who werent treated or who only had some of their risk factors treated, according to the study.
