Cortisone spray and asthma inhalators are associated with a lower risk of dementia

The risk of suffering from dementia was significantly lower for glucocorticoid users compared to non-users (HR = 0.81, CI = 0.78–0.84).

The lowest risk was found among users of inhaled glucocorticoid (HR = 0.65, CI = 0.57–0.75), followed by nasal (HR = 0.76, CI = 0.66–0.87), other (HR = 0.84, CI = 0.80–0.88), and oral users (HR = 0.83, CI = 0.78–0.88).

We found no difference in risk reduction between long- and short-term-users.

Conclusion: Longitudinal German health insurance data indicate that the use of glucocorticoids is associated with a lower risk of dementia. Prospective clinical trials will be necessary to determine whether glucocorticoids can have a positive impact on neuroinflammation and thus protect persons against dementia.

This is interesting.

I am not surprised to see it may be related to anti-inflammatory processes.

I think one of our primary tasks in daily life is to be vigilant for anything in our bodies, from head to toe, that may be subject to regular inflammation.

So many studies coming out this month about inflammation and dementia. Super exciting stuff. Here’s another one:
