Blood Pressure Fluctuations Can Lead to Decline of Brain Function
According to the new study from the US, published in the journal Hypertension, the long-term blood pressure fluctuations may cause the faster decline of the brain and cognitive function in seniors.
Bo Qin from Rutgers Cancer Institute in the USA says that blood pressure variability may signal blood flow instability, which could lead to the damage of the finer vessels of the body with changes in brain structure and function. The researcher believes that these blood pressure fluctuations may indicate pathological processes such as inflammation and impaired function of the blood vessels.
During the study, researchers examined results from 976 Chinese adults over a period of 5 years. Patients underwent a series of cognitive quizzes. After the analysis of the data, the scientists found that higher variability was associated with faster decline of brain function.
Researchers suggest that the findings of this study add to a growing body of evidence that such blood pressure fluctuations can indicate the higher risk of additional health problems.
