Heart Disease in Elderly Women Linked with Rise in Cognitive Impairment, says Study
According to a recent study, heart disease in elderly women is linked with a rise in cognitive impairment. The study carried out by a group of researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester has found that the risk gets increased by three times among older women.
Study researchers said that they also evaluated the link among men. Though they found the link, it was not quite significant. "For women, the association of cardiac disease with non-amnestic mild cognitive impairment persisted after the exclusion of participants with a history of stroke and after adjustment for several confounders", said the study researchers.
Mild cognitive impairment was defined as a key way to suffer from dementia, explained study researchers. They continued by saying that amnestic mild cognitive impairment occurring with memory loss is thought to be another step to suffer from Alzheimer's disease.
On the other hand, non-amnestic mild cognitive impairment is quite different as it affects the vascular type of dementia, which has no link with Alzheimer's disease.
The study is said to be quite an extended one. Initially, study researchers assessed the link between coronary disease and mild cognitive impairment. After knowing the same, they extended the study to know the effects separately in men and women.
