Washington: According to a recent study, middle-aged lung disease could pose a dangerous risk for dementia or mental health later.
The results were published in & # 39; Journal Journal of Medical Medicine Respiratory and Critical CareSouth Westerly
The author of Pamela L Lutsey from the University Health School at the University of Minnesota, and a group of researchers reported limestone lung diseases and a dementia-related barrier. Alzheimer's disease and mental disorder. The bond was stronger for restricted lung infections, such as idiopathic cubic fibrosis and sarcoidosis, than for a lung inflammatory disease (COPD).
"Public health priority is to stop dementia, and previous studies have suggested that the health, often preventive, of lungs can be more vulnerable to in developing dementia, "said Dr. Lutsey.
"In this study, we have shown the long term link between the adverse effects of lungs and the risk of developing dementia, and using high quality measures, author.
The study was found compared to those with no lung disease, the problems of dementia or lung mental illness:
– A higher 58 per cent among those with limited lung disease.
– A higher 33 per cent among those with a preventive lung disease.
The study also found that low results had two spirital tests – related to dementia related to a single (FEV1) critical measure and essential essential capacity (FVC). FEV1 is the amount of air quality that can be used by a person; carried forward in one second. FVC is a measurable amount of lungs.
According to the authors, explanations that are possible for those results are that the presence of a lung disease produces low blood levels of oxygen, for the blood vessels of the brain.
Research tensions included the fact that partners' lung work was only evaluated at the beginning of the survey and many patients died before being assessed for dementia or non-mental health.
As it is not a randomly controlled test, the relationship can not determine the causes and effects between the presence of lung disease and dementia or naturally adverse effects.
If these abilities are crucial, the researchers wrote, this would add extra pressure to work to improve air quality and help people to prevent smoking. These public health measures may also lower the levels of dementia as well as reducing lung disease.
"Preventing a lung disease is very important," said Professor Lutsey, saying that if there are other surveys; confirming the results of the survey, "both individuals and policy makers will have additional inspiration to protect changes that protect their health from the lungs, thus preventing dementia.
