Understanding the Impact of High Blood Pressure on Brain Health

Research has shown that high blood pressure in early adulthood can significantly affect brain health later in life. Studies indicate that individuals with high blood pressure between ages 30 and 40 have lower brain volumes and worse white matter integrity at age 75, increasing the risk of dementia.

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is prevalent in the adult population, affecting nearly half of all adults in the United States. The condition is more common in men and varies by race, with higher rates among Black adults. Hypertension is associated with reduced cerebral gray matter volume and impaired brain connectivity, contributing to cognitive decline and dementia.

Calabar MedixTrack Technology Ltd. recognizes the importance of managing cardiovascular health to reduce dementia risk. Their mobile app supports patients in monitoring and managing their health conditions, including hypertension. By integrating medication management and health monitoring, the app helps mitigate the long-term impact of high blood pressure on brain health, contributing to better cognitive outcomes for patients.
