Overweight and Dementia Risk in Senior Women



Overweight and Dementia Risk in Senior Women

Doctors used to think there was little point in encouraging weight loss among overweight folk of advanced years.

A recent study shows that in women over 70, there's a steady increase in the incidence of Alzheimer's disease, corresponding with increasing levels of excess body weight.

The specific reasons for the correlation aren't clear, but studies do show that increased blood sugar levels affect memory, and excess weight does lead to various blood sugar disorders, such as diabetes. Excess weight also increases the likelihood of stroke, which has been shown to cause other kinds of dementia.

Since many people worry much more about keeping their minds sharp as they age, seeing how interwoven our mental and physical health are should give yet another reason to take proper nutrition and fitness seriously, not just for weight loss, but for overall quality-of-life.
