Oscillating blood pressure might be directly linked to dementia, the recent study reveals. Hence, people whose blood pressure rises and at times lowers can be at higher risk of determined or long-lasting mental disorder. These fluctuations contribute to the changes in the structure of the brain.
Researchers conducted a survey that examined 1,674 individuals who did not show any signs of dementia. They analyzed that adults with consistent oscillation exhibited dementia in comparison with those who did not had fluctuations in blood pressure.
The severity of blood pressure depends on the individual’s behavior, inheritance as well diet habits. Moreover, age is another important factor that can affect an individual’s blood pressure level. It is the disorder that takes place due to hitting of blood to the walls of arteries with greater potential.
Dr. Tomoyuki Ohara, the lead author from the University of Kyushu said, “The study we conducted confirmed the relationship between fluctuating blood pressure and dementia. Fluctuation of blood pressure on a daily basis can lead to vascular dementia, all-cause dementia or sometimes to Alzheimer’s disease.”
Exercising on daily basis, intake of balanced and healthy diet can reduce the risk and keep the blood pressure under control. Following are some of the ways to lower down the increased blood pressure.
- Reduce the consumption of salt
- Consumption of liquified hibiscus
- Drinking plenty of coconut water
- Considerable intake of garlic or drinking ginger-cardamom tea
- Eating slices of cucumber on daily basis
- Intake of magical condiment called as Ashwagandha manages your blood pressure naturally
“Another possibility of fluctuations in blood pressure is that it can lead to intellectual deterioration rather developing the risk of dementia”, says director Dr. Constantino Iadecola of the Feil Family Brain and Mind Research Institute.
Doctors have still not studied how these fluctuations can be managed. But once they find out how to control it, they will definitely be able to minimize the risk of dementia.
