Hypertension is one of the main causes of Alzheimer’s disease. You should control your blood pressure when you are young!

Last week, I received an old couple. He had high blood pressure. Recently, he always felt that his heart was not good, so he had to be hospitalized for examination. But the old lady said that by the way, she would also run a hospital for her to check. After all, both of them are about 80 years old, so it should be checked. Later, I learned that the main reason for the old lady to stay in hospital was to stay with him, because he had high blood pressure for many years, and now he is a little senile dementia. Sometimes he doesn’t know people and can’t express himself clearly. The old lady was not at ease, so she also ran a hospital to look after the old man. To be exact, it should be called Alzheimer’s disease, which is mainly a degenerative disease of the central nervous system characterized by progressive cognitive impairment and behavioral impairment in the elderly. Alzheimer’s disease has become the fifth largest killer in China, and the number of deaths has increased by 62.4% in the past 13 years. Nearly 50 million people worldwide suffer from dementia, and by 2050, the number of people with dementia is estimated to increase to 152 million. The early stage of Alzheimer’s disease may be the decline of memory, the ability of learning new things, the decline of attention, the decline of executive ability, and the decline of language expression ability, but it does not affect daily life. However, with the aggravation of the disease, different patients will have different manifestations, such as forgetfulness, loss of memory, no understanding of people, no way to go home, anxiety and negativity. Aphasia, loss of recognition, loss of use, personality changes, mental disorders, and even urination. < p > < p > in the end, they will develop into apathy, inconstancy of crying and laughing, loss of speech, being unable to dress and eat, lying in bed all day without language, muscle atrophy, paralysis, lung infection, urinary tract infection, and death of various complications. < p > < p > Fudan University research shows that if you have hypertension in middle age or earlier. These people are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease. In middle-aged patients with hypertension, the risk of Alzheimer’s disease increased by 19%. When systolic blood pressure increased, the risk of dementia increased by 54%, diastolic blood pressure increased by 50%, and the risk of dementia increased by 34% when systolic blood pressure was & gt; 130 mmHg in middle age. < / P > < p > published the results of a study that showed that intensive antihypertensive therapy reduced the risk of mild cognitive impairment, which is one of the risk factors for dementia. If antihypertensive drugs are used for more than 5 years, the risk of Alzheimer’s disease is reduced by 43%. < p > < p > less education, hearing loss, smoking, hypertension, obesity, inactivity, loneliness, unsociability, depression, diabetes, head injury, excessive drinking and exposure to air pollution are all related to Alzheimer’s disease. In our country, low level of early education, hypertension, lack of physical activity, obesity, smoking and hearing loss have the greatest impact on Alzheimer’s disease. It is recommended to control hypertension effectively, especially over 40 years old. Blood pressure should be monitored. If hypertension is found, it should be actively controlled and controlled within 130 mmHg as far as possible. Controlling blood pressure can not only prevent Alzheimer’s disease, but also prevent many cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Focus
