1. Trends in disability in activities of daily living among Chinese older adults, 1997-2006: the China Health and Nutrition Survey.

    Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sc... 70(6):739 (2015) PMID 25414515 PMCID PMC4506321

    A decline in prevalence of late-life disability in activities of daily living (ADLs) has been reported in Western countries. We investigate the time trend of disability in basic ADLs among Chinese older people in 1997-2006, and explore the potential contribution of cardiometabolic diseases to th...
  2. A major role for cardiovascular burden in age-related cognitive decline.

    Nature Reviews Cardiology 12(5):267 (2015) PMID 25583619

    The incidence of dementia and cardiovascular disease (CVD) increases with age. Current evidence supports the role for both atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis as a common pathophysiological ground for the heart-brain connection in ageing. Cognitive decline and CVDs share many vascular risk fact...

    Cardiometabolic risk factors and related cardiovascular diseases represent major threats to healthy aging. We aimed to estimate distribution, pharmacological treatment, and control of main cardiometabolic risk factors among older people. This population-based study included 3363 participants (ag...

  9. Walking speed, processing speed, and dementia: a population-based longitudinal study.

    Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sc... 69(12):1503 (2014) PMID 24706441

    Slow walking speed has been shown to predict dementia. We investigated the relation of walking speed, processing speed, and their changes over time to dementia among older adults. This study included 2,938 participants (age 60+ years) in the population-based Swedish National study on Aging and C...

  13. Highly prevalent and poorly controlled cardiovascular risk factors among Chinese elderly people living in the rural community.

    European Journal of Preventive Cardiology 21(10):1267 (2014) PMID 23598595

    The epidemiological scenario of cardiovascular risk factors (CRFs) among elderly people in rural China is unclear. We seek to describe the distribution, burden and management of major CRFs among older Chinese people living in the rural community. This cross-sectional study included 1538 particip...

  15. Association between lipid profile and depressive symptoms among Chinese older people: mediation by cardiovascular diseases?

    International Journal of Behavioral Medicine 21(4):590 (2014) PMID 24136399

    The potential mediating effect of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) (e.g., ischemic heart disease and stroke) on the association between abnormal serum lipids and late-life depressive symptoms has not been investigated. We aimed to examine the associations between serum lipids and elevated depressi...
