Vets with Post-Traumatic Stress are at High Risk of Dementia
By Mary Brophy Marcus,

Veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have a
significantly higher risk of developing dementia compared with veterans
who don't have the disorder, a study reports today.
Using data from the Department of Veterans Affairs National Patient Care
Database, scientists from the University of California-San Francisco
analyzed files of 181,093 veterans ages 55 and older without dementia from
1997 to 2000. The mean age at the start of the study was 68, and 97% were
male.

During the follow-up period from 2001 to 2007, the researchers learned
that 53,155 veterans were diagnosed with dementia or cognitive impairment.
Veterans who had post-traumatic stress developed dementia at a rate of
10.6% over seven years, while those who didn't have the disorder had a
rate of 6.6%, the researchers reported.

The researchers reported their findings at the International Conference on
Alzheimer's Disease in Vienna.
