Obesity in Middle Age Tied to More Rapid Mental Decline: Study

MONDAY, Aug. 20 (HealthDay News) -- People who are obese and suffer from high blood pressure and other problems linked to heart disease and diabetes may also see a faster decline in their mental abilities, according to a new study by French researchers.

Having high blood pressure, high cholesterol or high blood sugar, or being on medication to control these conditions, are among the signs of metabolic syndrome. This cluster of symptoms is considered a forerunner for heart disease and diabetes.

For the study, participants with at least two of these signs were considered to have metabolic syndrome.

Participants came from the long-running Whitehall II study, which began in 1985 and follows British civil servants from middle age onward.

For the new findings, researchers followed more than 6,400 people aged 39 to 63 for 10 years. At the start of the study, they recorded patients' risk factors, including weight.

During the follow-up decade, participants also took tests on memory, reasoning and overall mental function at three intervals, according to the report published in the Aug. 21 issue of the journal Neu
