Background: Hearing impairment is prevalent among older adults and has been identified as a risk factor for cognitive impairment and dementia. We evaluated the association of hearing impairment with long-term cognitive decline among community-dwelling older adults. Methods: A population-based longitudinal study of adults not using hearing aids who had hearing acuity and cognitive function assessed in 1992-96, and were followed for a maximum of 24 years with up to five additional cognitive assess...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to examine the association of pregnancy history with trajectories of cognitive function in older women. METHODS: Participants were 1,025 women (mean age = 73.1 ± 9.6 y) enrolled in the Rancho Bernardo Study who attended a clinic visit between 1988 and 1992, when pregnancy history (ever pregnant, number of pregnancies, ages at first and last pregnancy) was recorded and cognitive function was assessed with a battery of four tests repeated up to 7 times through 2...

BACKGROUND: physical activity in older age has been associated with better cognitive function, but the role of earlier life physical activity is less well understood. OBJECTIVE: determine associations between physical activity throughout the lifespan and cognitive function in older age. DESIGN: cross-sectional study. SETTING: the Rancho Bernardo Study of Healthy Aging in southern California. SUBJECTS: A total of 1,826 community-dwelling men and women (60-99 years) who attended a research visit i...

OBJECTIVE: The apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene is an established risk factor for sporadic Alzheimer's disease, with elevated risk for e4-carriers and reduced risk for e2-carriers. However, it is unclear whether APOE modifies risk for cognitive decline in normal aging. The objective of this study was to determine whether e2 and e4 are associated with rates of normal cognitive aging, and whether associations of e4 with cognitive decline are modified by sex, education or health behaviors (exercise, al...

Summary Background Change in albuminuria as a surrogate endpoint for progression of chronic kidney disease is strongly supported by biological plausibility, but empirical evidence to support its validity in epidemiological studies is lacking. We aimed to assess the consistency of the association between change in albuminuria and risk of end-stage kidney disease in a large individual participant-level meta-analysis of observational studies. Methods In this meta-analysis, we collected individual-l...

OBJECTIVE: Studies of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) therapy in older adults suggest sex-specific effects on bone mineral density (BMD) and body composition, but the ability of a single study to reach this conclusion was limited. We evaluated the effects of DHEA on sex hormones, BMD, fat mass and fat-free mass in older women and men enrolled in four similar clinical trials. DESIGN: Pooled analyses of data from four double-blinded, randomized controlled trials. PARTICIPANTS: Women (n = 295) and me...

BACKGROUND: Although physical activity has been associated with better cognitive function and reduced dementia risk, its association with cognitive decline in normal aging remains uncertain. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether physical activity in youth and older age are associated with age-related cognitive change. METHODS: Over a period of 27 years, 2,027 community-dwelling adults (mean age 73.5; 60% women) of the Rancho Bernardo Study of Healthy Aging completed up to seven cognitive assessments, ...

Objective This study investigated how cognitive function changes with age and whether rates of decline vary by sex or education in a large, homogenous longitudinal cohort characterized by high participation rates, long duration of follow-up, and minimal loss to follow-up. Design/Setting/Participants Between 1988 and 2016, 2,225 community-dwelling participants of the Rancho Bernardo Study, aged 31 to 99 years at their initial cognitive assessment, completed neuropsychological testing approximatel...
