Sex-specific association of IncRNA SNP near MYLIP with Healthy Aging Index

Sex-specific association of IncRNA SNP near MYLIP with Healthy Aging Index
  • Mortality-optimized healthy aging index (HAI-M) predicts mortality
  • Elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels,
  • hypertension, type 2 diabetes (T2D)  are CHD risk factors
  • LDL is associated with cognitive decline and dementia, and systolic blood pressure (SBP) in T2D patients, who are in increasing risk for earlier death
  • LDL genetic contributors to mortality is limited
