Neurology Today (3/23, Lyles) reports a pooled cohort study linked “elevated cardiovascular risk factors…with greater cognitive decline in late-life.” Lead author Kristine Yaffe, MD, explained the “findings suggest that attention should be broadened to consider early adult cardiovascular health. Increasing trends in diabetes and obesity even in early adulthood coupled with higher levels of underdiagnosed and undertreated cardiovascular risk factors in younger ages could have significant public health implications for cognitive health.” The findings were published on March 17 in Neurology.
