Materials & Methods: In cross-sectional present study 107 elderly residents of the Kahrizak Charity Foundation aged 80 and older were participated.
Dementia was assessed using Mini-Mental State Examination questionnaire. Body mass index (BMI) was computed by weight (kg)/height (m2).
Results: In a multivariate logistic regression model, late-life overweight was indicated an independent and significant protective factor against developing dementia (Odd Ratio: 0.24, 95% Confidence Interval: 0.06-0.93), also there was no significant association between waist circumference and risk of dementia incident.
Conclusion: Overweight in late-life was shown as a protective factor against incident dementia risk incident.
