HealthDay (11/4, Preidt) reports, “Most people with Down syndrome have dementia by age 55, a new study shows.” Researchers “analyzed Medicaid claims data on 3,000 people with Down syndrome, aged 21 and older, in Wisconsin” and found that “3 in 5 people with Down syndrome will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia by age 55.” In comparison, those “without Down syndrome are rarely diagnosed with dementia before age 65.” The results were published in JAMA Neurology.
