Cause of Common Dementia

A study just published in the Annals of Neurology, October 30, 2014, suggests that the cause of common dementia is basically "mini-strokes".  Since there is a potential vascular cause, prevention might include managing blood sugar, lipids, stress, weight, and blood pressure.  One excellent marker for arterial inflammation is C-Reactive Protein, which has already been correlated to cognitive impairment and stroke risk when the levels are high.  Many things have been shown to lower high C-Reactive Protein levels, including vitamin C (1000mg/day in this study).  This study showed that COQ10 at 150mg/day had a beneficial effect on inflammatory markers in those with coronary artery disease (CRP and IL-6, but not homocysteine).
