Obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart problems also increase a person’s chance of having this type of dementia when they’re older.
Managing such health conditions (if you have them) is key to reduce your risk of this debilitating disease.
“Some research suggests that regular exercise and a healthy diet, especially in midlife and beyond, might also help to lower your risk,” said Alzheimer’s Research UK.
It’s also advisable to “eat a healthy, balanced diet” and to “maintain a healthy weight” to lower your risk of dementia.
