Keep your blood pressure, avoid old age so as not to senile
Your blood pressure should be maintained so that old age is not senile. The decline in cognitive abilities in the elderly (seniors) are often regarded as normal. In fact, declining cognitive abilities characterized by many forget is an early symptom of senility or dementia. Dementia is a severe and progressive intellectual decline that interferes with social functioning, employment, and a person's daily activities. Recent hypothesis states, dementia has been linked to high blood pressure (over 140/90) in the elderly. Research that was held the researchers from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the United States, by scanning the brains of patients with hypertension found a scar formation in the brain which would later lead to dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Scarring can be formed since the middle age, years before the occurrence of memory disorders in the elderly. "How to prevent cognitive decline in older adults the main thing is to control blood pressure," said Dr. Walter Koroshet, Deputy Director of the National Institutes of Health, USA. Age is the biggest factor of the emergence of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Scientists have long noticed that heart disease risk factors (hypertension, obesity, diabetes) the cause of dementia. However, they still have not found a direct link. Now the researchers found that most patients with dementia had one or two risk factors. And, factors that will weaken the arterial hypertension is believed to accelerate the process of Alzheimer's disease. The hypothesis the researchers is the increase in high blood pressure will damage the tiny blood vessels that feed the brain marrow (white matter) and interfere with the signal. In fact, the brain marrow function like a telephone network in the nervous system so that each brain cell is able to communicate with one another. When the connection is interrupted, of course, will happen pikun.Jadi keep your blood pressure so that the elderly keep fit. Old age we have to prepare early, or from now or not at all, certainly when we do not want our children to succeed in the future but we can not enjoy or at least we can feel that what we fight for is not in vain . SO DO NOT REGRET LATER, when we CAN, DO NOT TOO LATE to pack Welcoming future BETTER AND healthy.
