Prevention of Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer's disease is not a preventable condition. However, a number of lifestyle risk factors for Alzheimer's can be modified. Evidence suggests that changes in diet, exercise and habits — steps to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease — may also lower your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and other disorders that cause dementia. Heart-healthy lifestyle choices that may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's include the following: Exercise regularly Eat a diet of fresh produce, healthy oils and foods low in saturated fat Follow treatment guidelines to manage high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol If you smoke, ask your doctor for help to quit smoking Studies have shown that preserved thinking skills later in life and a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease are associated with participating in social events, reading, dancing, playing board games, creating art, playing an instrument, and other activities that require mental and social engagement.
