Higher levels of triglycerides linked to lower risk of dementia

Older people who have higher levels of triglycerides, a type of fat, may have a lower risk of dementia and a slower cognitive decline over time compared to people who have lower levels, according to new research published in the October 25, 2023, online issue of Neurology. While the study found a link, it does not prove that higher levels of triglycerides prevent dementia.
