Aerobic Exercise Reverses Alzheimer Symptoms

Aerobic exercise can reverse the cognitive decline typical of Alzheimer's disease, at least in the short term, a new meta-analysis suggests.

"It's not a huge improvement, but to be able to say there is any improvement is a pretty big deal," said Gregory Panza, a PhD candidate from the University of Connecticut in Hartford.

This meta-analysis is the first to suggest that aerobic activity is more effective in reversing Alzheimer's disease than resistance training. "What this can do is target the types of intervention that need to be given," Panza told Medscape Medical News.

Because it has been shown that exercise can improve cognitive abilities in healthy people, many public health organizations, including the World Health Organization, recommend exercise as a therapy for people with Alzheimer's disease.

But trials have produced mixed results, and most attempts to aggregate data from these trials have not used the best statistical methods, Panza said. In fact, some meta-analyses have combined Alzheimer's disease with other forms of dementia, even though the disorders have different causes.

To examine which types of exercise produce the most benefit, Panza and his colleagues looked at 914 potentially relevant studies. They zeroed in on studies that used exercise as the only intervention, had a nonexercise control group, measured cognitive impairment, and involved people diagnosed with or at risk for Alzheimer's disease who were at least 19 years of age.

Panza presented the findings here at the American College of Sports Medicine 2017 Annual Meeting.

The team identified 19 studies with 1145 participants that met their criteria. 
Eleven of these studies looked at people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and eight looked at people at risk. People considered to be at risk for Alzheimer's disease had mild cognitive impairment, a genetic risk for the disease, or a biological parent with an Alzheimer's diagnosis.

Eighteen of the studies were published after 2001, and one study was unpublished.

There were 23 exercise subgroups in the 19 studies: 15 that used aerobic exercise as the only intervention, one that used resistance training as the only intervention, and seven that combined the two types of exercise.

In the exercise groups, participants exercised, on average, 140 minutes per week, spread over 3.4 days, at an intensity of 3.7 metabolic equivalents of task (METs) (1 MET equals 1 kcal/kg of body weight per hour, or roughly the amount of energy expended while sitting quietly).
