Background and Purpose Epidemiological studies have suggested the presence of strong correlations among diet, lifestyle, and dementia onset. However, these studies have unfortunately had major limitations due to their inability to fully control the various potential confounders affecting the nutritional status. The purpose of the current study was to determine the nutritional status of participants in the Korean Brain Aging Study for the Early Diagnosis and Prediction of Alzheimer's Disease…

Age and Nutritional Status by Mini-Nutritional Assessment (MNA) can discriminate Alzheimer’s Disease Severity
No statistically significant difference in the relationship between the parameters of anthropometry nutritional assessment and the CDR score were found and statistical analysis was performed using logistic regression models.
Associations between Frailty in Older Adults and Malnutrition in Rural Areas: 2019 Updated Version of the Asian Working Group for Sarcopenia
For older adults, MNA is a suitable tool of use in assessing both nutritional status and frailty and the nutritional status of older adults appears to be associated with frailty, even after corrections for physical and psychological function.
Association Between Body Mass Index and Cognitive Function in Mild Cognitive Impairment Regardless of APOE ε4 Status
It is suggested that higher BMI in patients with MCI were associated with better cognitive performance, and according to physical status, APOE ε4 genotype-specific strategies in the assessments and treatments may be necessary in elderly patients withMCI.
Short and medium-term effects of a multicomponent physical exercise program with a Mediterranean diet on bone mineral density, gait, balance, and fall risk for patients with Alzheimer disease
This clinical trial will generate more and new evidence on the effects of a multicomponent physical exercise program and Mediterranean diet in patients with Alzheimer disease on risk of falls and osteoporotic fractures, the relation of these with bone mineral density, gait and balance, and the correlations between them.
Capacidade de identificação de risco nutricional em idosos pelo Malnutrition Screening Tool em relação à miniavaliação nutricional.
Estudo transversal, analitico, que consistiu na realizacao de triagem e avaliacao nutricional dos pacientes idosos hospitalizados, atraves dos metodos Malnutrition Screening Tool e Miniavaliacaonutricional e observa-se associacao entre os testes.


Nutritional status of community-dwelling elderly with newly diagnosed Alzheimer’s disease: Prevalence of malnutrition and the relation of various factors to nutritional status
One in seven community-dwelling elderly with newly diagnosed AD is at risk of malnutrition and assessment of the nutritional status should be included in the comprehensive assessment of AD patients, which warrants further investigation.
National study of the nutritional status of Korean older adults with dementia who are living in long‐term care settings
The nutritional status of older adults with dementia who were living in long-term care settings in South Korea was poor and associated with multiple factors, and paying special attention to recognizing, assessing, preventing, and treating malnutrition in this population is necessary.
Nutritional status assessment during Alzheimer's disease: results after one year (the REAL French Study Group).
Among the patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease, the most malnutritioned worsen highly on cognitive and functional capacities, and the nutritional aggravation seems strongly linked to behavioural disorders aggravation.
Nutrient intake and brain biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease in at-risk cognitively normal individuals: a cross-sectional neuroimaging pilot study
The relationship between dietary nutrients and brain biomarkers of AD in cognitively normal individuals with and without AD risk factors is examined to provide a potential pathophysiological mechanism for epidemiological findings showing that dietary interventions may play a role in the prevention of AD.
Nutritional and psycho-functional status in elderly patients with Alzheimer’s disease
The psycho-functional decline of patients with Alzheimer’s disease is related to body composition variations, with a relative increase of fat mass with respect to the muscle component, according to bioelectrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA).
Impact of nutritional status on the evolution of Alzheimer's disease and on response to acetylcholinesterase inhibitor treatment.
It is indicated that AD patients living at home with a caregiver are frequently at risk of undernutrition, and undernourished patients appear to be those who best respond to AChEI treatment.
Mediterranean Diet and Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Assessed Brain Atrophy in Cognitively Normal Individuals at Risk for Alzheimer's Disease.
NL individuals showing lower adherence to a Mediterranean diet had cortical thinning in the same brain regions as clinical AD patients compared to those showing higher adherence, indicating that the MeDi may have a protective effect against tissue loss.
Different modes of weight loss in Alzheimer disease: a prospective study of 395 patients.
During the follow-up of patients with Alzheimer disease, risk factors for these 2 modes of weight loss should be sought to identify patients who would benefit from a nutritional intervention.
Spared and Impaired Abilities in Community-Dwelling Patients Entering the Severe Stage of Alzheimer’s Disease
Assessment of remaining cognitive, functional abilities and behavioral disorders at entry to severe AD should help to improve targeted management aimed at preserving these abilities and treating complications, thereby optimizing these patients’ quality of life.
