As with so many illnesses in the body, it really is about addressing the underlying inflammation. It is far less likely that there is a causal link, and instead an issue of inflammation caused by lifestyle (stress, inflammation promoting diet, etc). If you work to reduce or eliminate the underlying inflammation, you will greatly reduce your risk of both health concerns.
“Certain proteins and inflammatory processes have been found in increased levels in the skin of patients with rosacea,” noted Egeberg, “These have also been linked to dementia, in particular Alzheimer’s disease,” he added. However, “while this may be one potential explanation, we cannot say for sure that this is the cause.” Dr. Anton Porsteinsson…agreed that “there may be common processes that put you at risk for both disorders.”
