It Will Come Back To You: Teens Who Drink And Take Drugs Excessively Are More Likely To Suffer From Dementia

Teens might be thinking they are  living “the Life” by drinking and taking drugs excessively but the latest study says the fun won’t last as it will come back to haunt them before the age of 65.

Researchers, who examined data from more than 488,000 young conscripts from 1969 to 1979, have identified nine factors which increase the chances of getting the degenerative disease.

 

These also include taking anti-psychotic drugs, having a father who suffered from dementia, having a low cognitive function, having low height and high systolic blood pressure, having a stroke while young, and suffering depression.

The study found the risk factors accounted for most cases of young-onset dementia (YOD) diagnosed before the age of 65.

Dr Peter Nordstrom of Umea University, in Sweden, said: ‘Young-onset dementia that is, dementia diagnosed before 65 years of age, has been related to genetic mutations in affected families.

‘The identification of other risk factors could improve the understanding of this heterogeneous group of syndromes.

‘Collectively, these factors accounted for 68 per cent of the YOD cases identified.’

On average the conscripts were followed up 37 years after their initial tests and 487 men were diagnosed as having YOD at an average age of 54.

The results indicated that men with at least two of the nine risk factors, and in the lowest third of overall cognitive function, had a 20-fold increased risk of YOD.

Dr Nordstrom said: ‘In this nationwide cohort, nine independent risk factors were identified that accounted for most cases of YOD in men.

‘These risk factors were multiplicative, most were potentially modifiable, and most could be traced to adolescence, suggesting excellent opportunities for early prevention.’

The findings are published by JAMA Internal Medicine.
