Stroke symptoms may lead to cognitive problems
Stroke symptoms may lead to cognitive problems (June 19, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Cincinnati – According to research published in Neurology, stroke symptoms raise risk of memory problems—even without any actual stroke occurring. Researchers followed over 23,000 people with an average age of 64. None of the participants had a stroke at the outset of the study, and were asked about their stroke symptoms every 6 months for two years. Participants also had their thinking and memory tested annually. Results showed that Caucasians who had stroke symptoms, but no stroke, were 2x more likely to develop cognitive problems when compared to Caucasians who had no symptoms. African Americans who had symptoms were 70% more likely to develop cognitive problems than those without symptoms.
