HealthDay (1/25, Mann) reports “older adults who maintain a steady weight as they age are less likely to experience rapid cognitive decline, regardless of how much they weigh to start,” according to research published in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: the Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association. Investigators “analyzed data from the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center on about 16,000 older adults” and found that “after about five years of follow-up, everyone showed some degree of mental decline, but it was more than 60% faster in the group with fluctuating BMIs compared to those whose BMI stayed stable.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
