UK scientists are out with another discovery over older people especially because they have noticed in their findings that elderly people experiencing episodes of delirium are at higher risks of developing dementia too.
Above findings have come from the researchers at the University of Cambridge. After studying 553 cases of elderly people aged more than 85 years, researchers noticed that the ones, who have suffered from delirium but are presently dementia-free are at eight times higher risks of developing dementia later.
The study was run more than ten years during which experts noticed the above facts. Another fact that has been released from the research says that the dementia patients are also at similarly higher levels of risks of suffering from delirium and that too has been found to be associated with severest cognitive problems and faster decline of the health.
The findings have been published in the journal Brain. Through the above research, experts advise all the older people, who are experiencing acute confusion and disorientation to keep a close watch over their health and the associated symptoms to clear the risks.
Regarding the situation, Lead Author Dr. Daniel Davis from the University of Cambridge, said: "This means that delirium, or the acute causes of delirium, could be a newly discovered cause of dementia."
