Internal Lipid Profile and Body Lipid Profile in Relation to Cognition: A Cross-Sectional Study in Southern China

American Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease &Other Dementiasr, Volume 35, Issue , January-December 2020.
Aim:There are currently no established, clinically relevant, non-invasive markers of cognitive impairment, except for age and APOE genotype.Methods:A cross-sectional study of 1,296 participants from Nanchang, China, has been conducted. We collected data from Mini–Mental State Examination (MMSE) scores, internal lipid profiles and body lipid profiles, age and other factors that may have an effect on cognitive impairment.Results:Internal lipid profiles (OR = 1.03 [95%CI, 1.00-1.06], P = 0.024), body lipid profiles (OR = 1.05 [95%CI, 1.01-1.09], P = 0.014), and age (OR = 1.03 [95%CI, 1.01-1.05], P < 0.001) were all positively correlated with cognitive impairment.Conclusions:Cognitive impairment was more frequent in female patients with high internal lipid profiles or body lipid profiles, and these characteristics were related to age and education.Internal Lipid Profile and Body Lipid Profile in Relation to Cognition: A Cross-Sectional Study in Southern ChinaInternal Lipid Profile and Body Lipid Profile in Relation to Cognition: A Cross-Sectional Study in Southern ChinaAlzheimers{$excerpt:n}
