Hypertension Linked to Memory Problems in Middle Age

By Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy
August 25, 2009

  • Elevated diastolic blood pressure, hypertension, leads to decreases in cognition in people over age 45. 

Hypertesnion liked to memory problems in middle age.A stroke study has been following 20,000 people age 45 and older. The study found that every 10-point increase in diastolic blood pressure, the bottom number in the blood pressure, increased the odds of having some impairment in thinking ability by 7 percent.

A researcher stated “It’s possible that by preventing or treating high blood pressure, we could potentially prevent cognitive impairment, which can be a precursor to dementia.“

The National Institutes of Health is now organizing a large clinical trial to evaluate whether aggressive blood pressure lowering can decrease a number of important health outcomes, including cognitive decline.

For many high blood pressure is caused by atherosclerosis, narrowing of the blood vessels, or a decrease in the flexibility of the blood vessels. In either case blood, oxygen and nutrients have a difficult time getting through the blood vessels to the cells in the body. If the blood and nutrients can’t get through the blood vessels the brain cells will die. When enough brain cells die memory will decrease.

If your blood pressure is higher than 180/80 call our office and schedule your DynaPulse Wave test. We can help you lower your blood pressure and preserve your brain cells.

Additional information about high blood pressure is available at the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
