Abstract :

 Objective: A cross sectional observational study to evaluate the association of Recent memory, Remote memory and Mental Balance of healthy elder population (aged 50 and above) with their Hb concentration. Methods: 60 healthy volunteers (46 females and 16 males) from 240 participants of an Urban health camp, were selected for the study. Their memory scores were evaluated using PGI memory scale and their Hb concentrations were recorded from their medical report. Then values of Recent memory, Remote memory and Mental balance scores were compared against Hb concentration. Result: Remote memory and Mental balance showed strong positive correlation (P<0.001), whereas recent memory did not show any association (P>0.05). Conclusion: Hb concentration significantly influences Remote memory and Mental balance; whereas no association has been found with Recent memory. Further extended investigations are required to prove this association.
