Exercise could slow withering effects of Alzheimer's

Exercise could slow withering effects of Alzheimer's

However, the findings of the study indicate an interesting possibility that performing aerobic workouts could at least slower the effects of Alzheimer's disease if treated during early stages.

One of the things we are more certain about, though, is that Alzheimer's disease is the result of many years-even several decades-of the buildup of amyloid plaques in the brain. "Right now doctors can't prescribe anything", said Dr Rong Zhang, who led the clinical trial.

"If these findings are replicated in an exceedingly larger trial, then perhaps at some point doctors are telling risky patients to begin Associate in Nursing exercise arrange". "In fact, there's no harm in doing so now".

The team compared the mental function and brain volume of 70 participants ages 55 and older who were either sedentary or who exercised for at least half an hour, four to five times a week. The results of experiments on mice also showed that exercises correlate with a slower deterioration of the hippocampus - the part of the brain that is responsible for the formation of long-term memory.

One such study thatMedical news Today reported on found that aerobic exercise preserves the brain health of people with mild cognitive impairment.Specifically, that study found that regular exercise maintains the integrity of the brain's white matter, which encompasses billions of nerve fibers and is linked with better executive function. There were an estimated 50 million people worldwide living with dementia in 2017 - a number that will nearly double every 20 years, reaching 131.5 million in 2050, it said.

Dr. Zhang is among a gaggle of scientists across the planet making an attempt to work out if exercise could also be the primary such medical care.

A new study suggests a link between obesity and abnormal bowel habits independent of diet, lifestyle, medical conditions and psychological factors. "This could be a proof-of-concept study, and we can't yet draw definitive conclusions".

"I'm excited regarding the results, however exclusively to a particular degree", Dr. Zhang said.
