    Research finds that women's risk of dementia increases with blood pressure
    Studies have found that women’s risk of dementia increases with blood pressure.
    Studies have found that women’s risk of dementia increases with blood pressure.

     

    Xinhua News Agency, Sydney, June 6 (Li Xinyu) A recent Australian study found that blood pressure has different effects on the risk of dementia in men and women.
    The risk of dementia in women increases with the increase in blood pressure.
    The paper has been published in the UK "BMC Medicine" magazine.

    Researchers from the George Institute for Global Health used the data of more than 500,000 British people between the ages of 40 and 69 collected by the British Biomedical Library from 2006 to 2010 to study the effects of cardiovascular problems on dementia in people of different genders.
    Risk difference.

    Studies have found that smoking, diabetes, and stroke history all mean a higher risk of dementia, and men and women have similar risks.
    But when it comes to blood pressure, there are gender differences-regardless of blood pressure, men are at higher risk of dementia, while women’s risk of dementia increases as blood pressure rises.

    At present, researchers are not yet clear about the reasons why gender differences lead to different risk levels.
    In an interview with reporters, Gong Yi, the first author of the paper, said that it may be due to the physiological differences between men and women, or it may be due to differences in medication use between people of different genders.
    Previous studies and data have shown that women take more drugs than men.

    Researchers believe that this study provides new ideas for controlling disease risks, and more targeted treatment of hypertension may be more effective in preventing dementia.
