Reports that previously indicated non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) could help with the symptoms of dementia have been proven inaccurate. In fact… these pills could cause you to LOSE your mind!
Patients who use NSAIDs did not have lower rates of cognitive decline or dementia, but actually had a 66 percent higher risk toward developing the memory-robbing condition. The Group Health patients were studied for 12 years.
Based on these results, researchers continue to evaluate the effect of inflammation in the development of Alzheimer’s, and look into alternative early detection methods and improved biomarkers.
