    • In Alzheimer's disease (AD), decreased physical activity and nutritional problems are parts of the natural course with probable implications on body composition. Body fat and lean body mass were measured with a bioelectrical impedance method in 25 women who had AD according to the criteria of NINCDS- ADRDA and in 63 health age-matched controls. The patients with AD had 9.5 kg lower body weight (p<0.01), due to almost 4.0 kg lower body fat and 6.0 kg lower lean body mass (p<0.001). This might imply a higher risk for morbidity and mortality. Body weight and lean body mass decreased with age in AD patients but not in the healthy control women. In the control group, the unmarried women had more than 13 kg lower body weight and 9 kg lower body fat than the mean values of all other marital status groups (p<0.01). The maintenance of lean body mass in the very healthy old indicate the possibilities for physical activity.

  • Autonomic cardiovascular responses to tilting in patients with alzheimer's disease and in healthy elderly women
  • 1992
  • Ingår i: Age and Ageing. - : Oxford University Press. - 0002-0729. ; 21:4, s. 301-307
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The cardiovascular responses to tilting and breathing were studied in 24 patients with late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 54 healthy control women aged between 75 and 96 years in order to study the parasympathetic and sympathetic heart-rate control. The cardiovascular response to tilting and breathing showed no age-associated decrease in the healthy control women. During rest, the AD patients had lower mean systolic and diastolic blood pressure but the same heart rate as the control patients. After tilting, the AD patients had a greater increase in heart rate, and the mean systolic blood pressure fell to 126 mmHg compared with 160 mmHg in the control women (p<0.001). After the initial acceleration, the following deceleration of the heart rate, an expression of parasympathetic nervous activity, was lower in the AD patients (p <0.001). The deep-breathing test showed no significant difference between the two groups, but the changes of acceleration and brake indices could indicate a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system since the AD patients were not recumbent.
