Recent research reveals that women’s aged 40 with high blood pressure are at increased risk of developing dementia years afterward.
The new study further demonstrated that women in their 40s with high blood pressure were 73 per cent more probable to develop dementia than women who had stable, normal blood pressure throughout their 30s and 40s.
Rachel Whitmer, PhD scholar at Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, California further conveyed that High blood pressure in midlife is identified risk for dementia. The study concerned 7,238 people were part of Kaiser Permanente California health.
They all had blood pressure ensure and other tests from 1964 to 1973 when they were an average age of 33, then again when they were an average age of 44.
Whitmer further conveyed that all though high blood pressure was common in men; there was no proof that having high blood pressure in one’s 30s or 40s at augmented risk of dementia for men.
