Washington: A new study has shown that hypertension may act as a predictor for progression to dementia in older adults with impaired ability to organize thoughts and make decisions.Individuals with mild cognitive (thinking, learning and memory) impairment—the state between aging-related brain changes and fully developed dementia—may experience deficits in different domains.
"This study may have profound implications for community dwellers with cognitive impairment, no dementia," said the authors. "We show herein that the presence of hypertension predicts progression to dementia in a subgroup of about one-third of subjects with cognitive impairment, no dementia," they added.ANI
