Can lifestyle choices alleviate the risk of dementia in patients with comorbid cardiometabolic diseases?

Takeaway

  • Comorbid cardiometabolic diseases (CMDs) are associated with increased dementia risk; however, leisure activities and social integration mitigate this risk.

Why this matters

    No studies have investigated whether lifestyle behaviors can counteract or compensate the increased risk of dementia related to CMDs. Understanding their effects on dementia related to CMDs, and exploring these mechanisms, is critical to improving patient outcomes.
