Vital exhaustion (VE) is a mental state of psychological distress, which could be a risk factor for dementia. Objective:To investigate whether VE is a risk factor for dementia in later life. Methods:We used data from 6,807 participants attending the third survey of the Copenhagen City Heart Study in 1991–1994.
