Interesting research. It looks like anticoagulants could be protective against dementia so another good reason to stay on them.
My mother has dementia (no AF though) and it’s something I definitely don’t want. We’re not aware of anyone else in her family that has had it. She has had breathing problems all her life (due to a deformity in her nose) that has impacted her sleep which we (and doctors) believe has lead to her current state. I’ll keep learning and dancing and taking anticoagulants and hopefully will avoid the dreaded dementia.
