Low diastolic blood pressure linked to brain atrophy
Low diastolic blood pressure linked to brain atrophy (June 10, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From the Netherlands - Low diastolic blood pressure may be associated with brain atrophy, according to a report published in JAMA Neurology. Researchers followed nearly 700 patients with arterial disease, examining the association between blood pressure changes and brain atrophy. Results showed that patients with lower diastolic blood pressure at the outset of the study had more atrophy in the subcortical region of the brain. Meanwhile, those with high blood pressure at outset of the study and whose DBP declined over time had reduce subcortical atrophy.
