A certain type of cholesterol may decrease Alzheimer's

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- High levels of HDL, or good cholesterol may decrease the risk of Alzheimer's disease later in life.

Researchers at Columbia University studied over one thousand adults with no memory impairment, noting their blood lipid levels.

After the follow up period, those with HDL levels higher than 55 milligrams per deciliter were less likely to develop Alzheimer's, even after adjusting for other factors.
