Nutritional Status is Associated With Severe Dementia and Mortality: The Cache County Dementia Progression Study

Descrição: Purpose: Studies have reported faster cognitive/functional decline in persons with dementia (PWD) with malnutrition. We investigated whether baseline nutritional status predicted severe dementia and mortality in a population-based sample. Patients: A maximum of 300 PWD were assessed annually for up to 8.6 years. Methods: Nutritional status was assessed using a modified Mini-Nutritional Assessment (mMNA). Severe dementia was defined as: -severe- rating on the Clinical Dementia Rating or Mini-Mental State Examination score -10.
