MCI is often a precursor to Alzheimer's Disease.
The results of a study of almost 2,000 men and women indicated that:
1. MCI was more prevalent in men than women.
2. Most of those affected by MCI were much more likely to have a form of MCI referred to as amnestic MCI.
3. MCI was higher among seniors with the APOE e4 gene. This gene is a known risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer's Disease.
4. MCI is prevalent more with those who have attended fewer years of schooling.
5. MCI is higher in never-married people.
