New Study to Determine the Risk of Chronic Stress to Alzheimer’s

While there are several studies linking stress to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and MS showing how stress can exacerbate the progression of the diseases, there have not been any similar studies done to establish if there is a link between stress and Alzheimer’s disease.

The Alzheimer’s Society is funding the study which will investigate the role chronic stress plays in the progression of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) to Alzheimer’s disease. MCI is a term that is used to describe the condition of people who begin to experience thinking and memory problems. MCI is often a precursor to dementia and Alzheimer’s. Approximately 60% of people with MCI will eventually develop Alzheimer’s.
