Summary: In oldest old nondemented noncarriers of the APOE4 allele, high cholesterol is associated with better memory function. Further examination of the role of APOE genotype on the association between cholesterol and cognitive performance, especially in the oldest old is warranted.

Key Takeaways

The APOE4 gene is associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's dementia. In older individuals with the APOE4 gene, higher cholesterol levels were associated with better memory function.

Dietary strategies to increase endogenous ketone body availability such as the ketogenic diet (KD) have recently been shown to alleviate inflammation of the respiratory tract. However, the role

Ketogenic diet for weight loss
