Weekly Health Tips

HIGH BP & COGNITIVE DECLINE

Posted: 03.2.2016
Having high blood pressure in your 50's may increase your risk of cognitive decline later in life. Researchers viewed data on participants in the Framingham Heart Study and found those who had high blood pressure in midlife scored poorer on cognitive tests measuring attention and executive function when they were in their 80's. Know your numbers and talk with your health care professional about lowering your blood pressure if it's high. Also, lifestyle changes such as regular exercise and eating a heart-healthy diet may help move blood pressure numbers into the normal range.
