Study author Mary Cushman, MD, MSc, of the University of Vermont College of Medicine in Burlington explains that blood type is only one of several factors that increase your risk of dementia.

“Our study looks at blood type and risk of cognitive impairment, but several studies have shown that factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes increase the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia.

“Blood type is also related to other vascular conditions like stroke, so the findings highlight the connections between vascular issues and brain health.

“More research is needed to confirm these results.”
