Dr. Farrer Interview with CNN: Fight Alzheimer’s in your mid-30s by tracking these warning signs
On Wednesday, March 23, 2022, Dr. Lindsay Farrer interviewed with Sandee LaMotte from CNN, and discussed about the recent study published in Alzheimer’s and Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association, Farmingham Heart Study.
“What’s unique about the study is the large sample of individuals that are examined every four years or so, starting at age 35, and followed into the age when an Alzheimer’s diagnosis may occur,” Farrer said.
According to the Study, People 35 to 50 could lower their Alzheimer’s risk by 15.4% if they raised their high-density lipoprotein, or HDL, by 15 milligrams per deciliter. People between the ages of 51 and 60 who raised their HDL reduced their risk by 17.9%.
