Body mass index across midlife and cognitive change in late life
International Journal of Obesity, 03/30/2012
Dahl AK et al. – There is a negative effect on cognitive abilities later in life related to being overweight/obese across midlife. Moreover, weight decline across midlife rather than low weight in late midlife per se was associated with low cognitive abilities. Weight patterns across midlife may be prodromal markers of late life cognitive health.
