Poor kidney function increases risk of dementia

People with impaired kidney function have a higher risk of developing memory problems and even dementia, according to an analytic study by researchers Kay Deckers and Sebastian Köhler. Both researchers work at Maastricht University's Alzheimer Centre Limburg (ACL). Their findings were published today in the leading scientific journal Neurology. Identifying these risk factors is the next step in researching prevention strategies for dementia.
