Abstract

Nutrition interventions has good potential in delaying cognitive decline among elderly with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). However, the sustainability of these programmes are still uncertain. Thus, a study has been conducted to determine the sustainability of fish oil supplementation and health education among elderly with MCI after one year of intervention. 18 subjects with MCI involved in this study with 6 persons were grouped into 3 different groups which is fish oil supplementation intervention (A), health education intervention (B) and control group (C), respectively. Analysis showed there were significant difference for intervention effect in Digit Span (p<0.05) and folat serum level (p<0.05) for group B with highest mean difference followed by group A and C. Health education and fish oil supplementation intervention have sustainability effect to increase folate serum level and to improve cognitive function using Digit Span Test. Thus, there is a need for health promotion and fish oil supplementation for cognitive function among elderly with MCI.
