Cholesterol Issues in 30s Linked to Alzheimer’s Risk.

Researchers analyzed data on nearly 5,000 people who underwent thorough exams during three specific age periods: 35-50, 51-60, and 61-70. They found that individuals who developed Alzheimer’s disease later in life were more likely to have had lower levels of high-density lipids (HDL) or “good” cholesterol and higher levels of triglycerides as early as age 35 than those who did not develop dementia later in life. The findings suggest that people should start taking control of their health and lifestyle sooner, such as attending annual wellness visits in their 30s, getting more exercise, and following a healthier diet to help lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
