Associations Between Blood Pressure and Cognitive Decline

Viernes, Julio 10, 2020

Long-term elevated blood pressure was responsible for greater cognitive decline in black Americans than in white Americans.
Black people, on average, experience earlier onset of elevated blood pressure (BP) and poorer control of BP throughout life than do white people. To establish whether blood pressure is associated with the observed earlier onset of cognitive impairment and faster decline in cognition in black patients, investigators performed a pooled cohort study of almost 20,000 patients (median age at study entry, 55; 20% black [self-reported]).
