While advancing age and genetics remain the most important risk factors for the disease, there has been growing interest in identifying effective strategies for prevention. Multiple findings are suggestive of lifestyle and health factors that may contribute to dementia, therefore, altering those factors that most affect us, could possibly prevent the onset of the disease. Anything that may prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s could have a dramatic impact on the lives of millions of people and their families. Join Dr. Gitelman as he discusses the various lifestyle factors that may lower your risk.
