As You Age Check Your BP for It Can Affect Your Mental Ability

cant after controlling for daytime SBP levels, confirming an independent relationship between exaggerated blood pressure variability and cognitive dysfunction in the elderly.

ABPM takes numerous blood pressure readings over a 24-hour period, and is considered the most accurate measurement of blood pressure in day-to-day clinical practice. The MMSE is a series of questions and tests and is most commonly used to evaluate memory problems in patients suspected of having dementia. Standard deviation (SD) of daytime systolic blood pressure (SBP) was also calculated as a measure of blood pressure variability. Previous research that was published in Hypertension: Journal of the American Heart Association in 2004 evaluated blood pressure effects on cognitive performance on 529 patients who were divided into two age groups: 18 to 46 years and 47 to 83 years.

The data showed that there was a correlation between higher blood pressure and decline in cognitive function over time in both age groups. The lead investigator suggested that lowering the systolic blood pressure by 20mmHg or diastolic blood pressure by 10mmHg would have a considerable beneficial effect on the preservation of cognitive abilities in the whole population. Calling for deeper investigation, Dr. Sakakura also said, ‘These results further validate previous indications that variable blood pressure has an effect on cognitive function in the very elderly. However, very little data exists to support these theories, and more research is needed to confirm the full impact of blood pressure on cognitive function in these patients.’
