The most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, starts 20 to 30 years before symptoms develop. To date, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s. A milestone article in the journal, Lancet tells us that about 40% of dementia risk can be reduced if we address 12 specific areas mostly related to lifestyle.
The FINGER Trial from Finland is the first of many studies using a multi-modality approach, using food, cognitive training, better blood pressure and blood glucose management and exercise to reduce the risk of dementia in people with minimal cognitive impairment.
In this episode, Andrea and Shabnam discuss the trial and how you can implement the research findings from the FINGER trial to reduce your risk for dementia.
