Healio (5/24, Miller) reports, “Psychiatric conditions were associated with a younger age at onset of Alzheimer’s disease [AD], and age differences only grew with each additional psychiatric diagnosis, researchers” concluded after screening some 1,500 patients with Alzheimer’s disease “for a history of those psychiatric conditions.” The study revealed that “the presence of only one psychiatric disorder was associated a 1.5-year younger age at AD onset; history of two psychiatric conditions was associated with a 3.3-year younger age at AD onset; and three or more diagnoses was associated with a 7.3-year younger age at AD onset.” The findings were presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s virtual annual meeting.
