Lowering blood pressure could cut risk factor for dementia

By February 1, 2019 February 4th, 2019 No Comments

Intensive lowering of blood pressure, to a less than 120 mm Hg level, can have a measurable impact on mild cognitive impairment (MCI) — a well-established precursor of dementia, a new study finds.
