Physical activity and lifestyle changes can reduce risk of dementia, says NICE

People can reduce their risk of developing dementia by exercising, becoming more active and making other healthy lifestyle changes.  This is according to an updated quality standard from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), published on 28 June. The new standard, which covers the prevention of dementia and the assessment, management and support of people living with the condition, says people can reduce the risk of developing some types of dementia by making lifestyle changes such as being more physically active, reducing alcohol consumption, not smoking, improving diet and not being overweight or obese. NICE also states that health professionals, such as physiotherapists, should be aware of the lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk of developing dementia and be able to offer advice to people about reducing this risk.
