Data from the UK Biobank provides evidence that older adults, aged 60 to 69 years, with near-ideal cardiovascular risk factor profiles have a substantially lower risk of geriatric conditions. Even small reductions in risk factors helped to reduce frailty, as well as dementia, chronic pain, and other disabling conditions of old age. Optimizing cardiovascular disease risk factors may therefore substantially reduce the burden of morbidity in later life.
