There Is a Link Between Hypertension and Dementia

May 31, 2018

A new study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease reported that people who had high blood pressure in their fifties were more likely to have cognitive problems in their eighties than those who had normal blood pressure in their fifties. This conclusion was reached after analyzing data from the Framingham Heart Study.

The implication of this study is very important for all of us. Hypertension is a serious problem for many reasons. Late dementia is only one example. There is no substitute for a regular medical examination.
