As reported by Fox News on 8/1 titled "Anemia may put people at higher risk for dementia," a new research study published in the journal Neurology finds that people who have been diagnosed with anemia have a nearly 41 percent higher risk for developing dementia than those who are not anemic.
Anemia is characterized by low levels of hemoglobin, or red blood cells, and it often causes fatigue, shortness of breath or heart problems. Study author Dr. Kristine Yaffe, of the University of California, San Francisco said, "Anemia and dementia are pretty common, so to find a link between two common things is important, because that could affect a lot of people."
Researchers have linked alcohol abuse to more than 60 diseases. Two of the top health issues related to a dependency on alcohol are anemia and dimentia. As stated by the online medical resource, WebMd, regarding anemia and diementia, "Heavy drinking can cause the number of oxygen-carrying red blood cells to be abnormally low. This condition, known as anemia, can trigger a host of symptoms, including fatigue, shortness of breath, and lightheadedness" and "speeds the shrinkage of certain key regions in the brain, resulting in memory loss and other symptoms of dementia."
