Research output: Contribution to specialist publication or newspaperSpecialist publication article

Abstract

Here we presented a review of our two articles presenting the prevalence of cardiovascular disease and diabetes in neurocognitive disorders; Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, mixed dementa and Lewy body disease. Cardiovascular disease and diabetes showed a significantly lower prevalence among cases with Alzheimer's disease and Lewy body disease, both neurodegenerative disorders, compared to cases with vascular dementia. These findings strongly argue against the suggestions of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia sharing risk factors. All neurocognitive disorders where confirmed through neuropathological examination.
