According to a recent study, checking your cholesterol and glucose levels at the age of 35 may prevent from getting Alzheimer’s later in life.
It is already shown consistently in other studies that high LDL (‘bad cholesterol’) above 55 years is related to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s. This study paid explicit attention to HDL (‘good cholesterol’) earlier in life, at the age of 35, and found that lower HDL in combination with high triglyceride levels might predict Alzheimer’s in the future. High glucose levels at the age of 51-60 were also linked to the disease.
Researchers believe that managing cholesterol and glucose levels can lower not only chances of having heart disease and diabetes, but can also help optimize brain health in later life.
