High blood pressure in middle age can lead to impaired cognition and is a potential risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease, according to a statement from the American Heart Association.

An estimated 80 million people in the United States have high blood pressure, and the brain is among the organs most affected.

Except for age, hypertension is the most important risk factor for vascular problems in the brain that lead to stroke and dementia.

There is consistent evidence that chronic high blood pressure during middle age (40 to 64) is associated with altered cognitive function in both middle age and late life (65 to 84).

Cognitive abilities that are affected include memory, speed of processing and executive function (ability to organize thoughts, manage time, make decisions, etc.)

Observational studies have demonstrated that high blood pressure causes atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and other damage to the brain’s blood vessels, leading to reduced blood flow to brain cells.

High blood pressure or hypertension is a silent killer that increases your risk of stroke and heart disease and causes serious health complications if left unchecked.

Most people,with high blood pressure, feel normal. (no headaches or tightness in the neck, etc.)  Many people are not even aware that they have hypertension. This is why you should have your blood pressure checked and checked frequently if you are on high blood pressure medication.

Blood pressure measures how hard the heart has to work to pump blood through the arteries.

If you have access to blood pressure monitoring equipment, check your blood pressure regularly, and record it. Blood pressure varies throughout the day, and taking your pressure at different times will allow you to share your readings with your primary care provider and to see your average blood pressure.

Personal complications arising from high blood pressure

Many people are aware that high blood pressure can cause heart disease but did you know…..

1. High blood pressure can damage your brain cells

Blood clots may cut oxygen supply to the brain cells. This causes the brain cells to die and stroke or dementia to occur.

The bursting of arteries in the brain may cause bleeding in the brain, resulting in a stroke.

2. High blood pressure can affect your eyesight

Uncontrolled high blood pressure causes the blood vessels in the eye to thicken and narrow, disrupting blood supply to the retina. Blurred vision can result. The retinal veins may burst and cause bleeding in the eye. If blood pressure remains untreated, these conditions, known as hypertensive retinopathy, can lead to total vision loss.

3. High blood pressure can cause kidney failure

High blood pressure can damage the arteries leading to the kidneys and the blood vessels in the kidneys, thus affecting the kidneys’ ability to remove excess water and waste products from the blood. This may lead to kidney failure.

4. High blood pressure can cause bone loss

People with high blood pressure have a harder time maintaining calcium levels. Excessive calcium loss can lead to loss in bone density. The body needs calcium to maintain strong bones and teeth, and to help blood vessels move blood throughout the body.

5. High blood pressure is associated with sleep problems

High blood pressure and sleep apnea are often closely associated with each other.
