Dementia risk age chart: What age group does dementia affect?

To lower your risk of dementia, you should try to keep your weight within the healthy range (BMI 21-25).

Dr Lee also recommends taking regular physical exercise – at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity exercise – and reducing your alcohol consumption so you only drink within recommended limits.

Stopping smoking is another thing you can do to reduce your risk and you can contact NHS Smokefree for free advice and support if this is something you’re looking into.

The doctors noted keeping your blood pressure well-controlled (which all of the above will help) is very important when it comes to preventing dementia.
