MedPage Today (2/21, George) reported researchers found in a meta-analysis that “older adults who had declines in both walking speed and memory abilities had a higher risk of dementia than people who declined in only one of those domains.” The review study was published in JAMA Network Open and concluded that “by itself, slower gait roughly doubled the risk of developing dementia in pooled analyses, while memory problems tripled it.” Meanwhile, “people who experienced parallel declines in gait and memory had more than six times higher risk of incident dementia than people who had no decline in memory or walking speed.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
