Chemicals & Chemistry Daily
2019 AUG 22 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Chemicals & Chemistry Daily Daily -- Investigators publish new report on Neurodegenerative Diseases and Conditions - Alzheimer Disease. According to news originating from Istanbul, Turkey, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “The most common type of dementia is an Alzheimer’s disease which is a major concern in growing chronic diseases in the geriatric society, and its connection with biochemistry has not been sufficiently understood. This study aims to evaluate the effects of blood biochemistry on Alzheimer’s disease.”
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Bezmialem Vakif University, “Eight participants aged 55+ with Alzheimer’s disease were analyzed. A cross-sectional work has conducted. Eighty patients have been divided into 2 groups as group A and group B according to laboratory findings including glycosylated hemoglobin, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TGA), vitamin D, folic acid, and vitamin B-12. Mean Mini-Mental State Examination scores between these different 2 groups have been compared. High levels of HDL, vitamin D, and folic acid correlate with cognitive scores, whereas high levels of total cholesterol, HbA1c, LDL show a negative effect on cognition scores.”
According to the news editors, the research concluded: “High-density lipoprotein, vitamin D, folic acid, cholesterol, HgA1c, and LDL have an effect on dementia.”
