Risk Of Senile Can Be Predicted From Urine

Simple urine test could reveal risk of brain function decline, which among other things causes people to go senile. These risks often faced by people with type 2 diabetes.

A study of 3,000 patients with type 2 diabetes, average age 62 years, showed that people who consistently have a certain protein in the urine in high levels are at greater risk for decreased brain function. And if 4-5 years when the measured protein content gets higher, an increased risk of brain function decline will increase by about 5 percent.

There is protein in the urine is called albuminuria, which according to researchers could be used as an early warning decline in brain function. However, if continued for 10-15 years, this could be a decline in cognitive function that visible at the age of 75-80 years.

People who suffer from type 2 diabetes have a 50-60 percent higher risk for cognitive impairment. Given diabetes and albuminuria are very common in society, these findings are very important. Moreover, albuminuria is also often found in hypertensive patients without diabetes.
