Women who develop high blood pressure in middle age may be at risk for dementia.
Researchers at Kaiser Permanente followed over 5,000 women from their 30s to their early 60s. Those who had high blood pressure in their 40s had a 65-percent increased risk of dementia.
The risk was even higher for women who developed high blood pressure in their 40s.
There was no such link among men.
