speed reduction gear in adulthood may be related to the onset of disease Alzheimer.
New research has revealed that people who begin to walk slower in old age may be suffering from the accumulation of amyloid plaque in their brands, which ultimately leads to Alzheimer’s disease.
A study carried out by the Center of Excellence in neurodegeneration in Toulouse, France found that pensioners who walked slower than the average speed of 2.3 miles per hour had a higher concentration of amyloid plaque.
The principal investigator, Dr. Natalia del Campo said: “It is possible that subtle alterations have to walk, in addition to memory concerns may signal Alzheimer’s disease, even before people show clinical symptoms. ”
Dr. Laura Phipps from Alzheimer’s Research UK said it is important that further research is conducted to explore the link further, as there are several factors that can lead to people walking slow in old age.
added that a number of physical problems may be associated with Alzheimer’s disease, as well as forgetfulness and confusion.
