Nine Factors That Appear to Elevate Alzheimer's Risk Evidence suggests benefit from addressing related potentially modifiable risk factors.

Jin-Tai Yu, M.D., Ph.D., an associate specialist in neurology at the University of California, San Francisco, and colleagues reviewed the findings of 323 studies completed between 1968 and 2014. Collectively, the studies involved more than 5,000 patients and looked at 93 conditions with the potential to affect Alzheimer's risk. The team set out to determine which factors appeared to offer some protection against developing Alzheimer's.

The strongest evidence suggested that:
  •  coffee, 
  • vitamins C and E, 
  • folate, 
  • nonsteroidal antiinflamatory drugs, 
  • statins,antihypertensive medications,
  • and estrogenmedications,
  • and estrogen supplementation, all appeared to reduce Alzheimer's risk. 

Patients battling several serious health conditions also seemed to see their risk fall, including those with:
  • arthritis, 
  • heart disease, 
  • metabolic syndrome, and/or cancer. 
Those who were light or moderate drinkers of alcohol similarly saw their Alzheimer's risk dip, alongside current smokers (apart from those of Asian descent), 
those struggling with stress, and seniors with high body mass index.

By contrast, a complex statistical analysis enabled the research team to zero in on the nine factors that appeared to elevate Alzheimer's risk among 66 percent of those who ultimately get the disease. 

Those include:
  •  high body mass index in midlife; 
  • carotid artery disease;
  •  hypertension;
  • depression; 
  • frailty; 
  • being poorly educated;
  •  having high levels of homocysteine;
  •  and (specifically among those of Asian descent) being a smoker and/or having type 2 diabetes.

Effective interventions in diet, medications, biochemical exposures, psychological condition, pre-existing disease and lifestyle may decrease new incidence of AD.

I do think that this kind of article should be shared so that many people will become aware of the importance of this topic. There are lots of people who are not well informed of the information you have just shared here. I am actually still on the process of understanding everything here and hopefully, I will be able to know and understand every single detail you have given to us. I am also planning to let my family know this and I will also ask some of their thoughts and opinions because they might know more things about Alzheimer. I will be asking them tonight since we will have our once a month meeting later.
