Cognitive Decline's Double Whammy.

According to a large sample of persons aged 60 years or older, metabolic syndrome may predispose to cognitive decline, especially when it occurs in conjunction with elevated C-reactive protein (CRP), new research suggests.


The findings add to the understanding of the association between neurometabolic disorders and cognition. The study was presented at the American Neurological Association 2013 Annual Meeting.


Metabolic syndrome was defined as having at least 3 of 5 traits (large waist circumference, high blood pressure, elevated glucose, elevated triglycerides, and decreased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol) associated with the disorder. Serum CRP, a marker of inflammation, was also measured.


Bonnie - The 3 metabolic syndrome traits most significantly associated with cognitive decline in the study were large waist circumference, high blood pressure, and elevated glucose, all of which are inflammatory-related disorders. C-Reactive Protein is a test to gauge the degree of inflammation in the body. Finally, cognitive decline is also an inflammatory-related disorder. Inflammation is the thread that weaves them all together.
