Poor recording of physical health, medication could be causing dementia trials to fail

Dementia trials could be failing because they all too often overlook the physical health of patients, according to new research. More than 60 per cent of people with dementia are estimated to have three or more other conditions (co-morbidities). The research shows how the combined effects of co-morbidities including diabetes, lung disease, arthritis and chronic heart failure are not being adequately described in dementia trials.
