Study underscores another key reason to control hypertension

”Washington–People with high blood pressure and their doctors have a new reason to work at controlling this common but high-risk condition: As patients get older, they might otherwise have worse-than-normal problems with short-term memory and verbal ability. New research shows that uncontrolled hypertension puts people at higher risk for sharper drops in these cognitive functions than does blood pressure that's normal due to diet, exercise and/or medication. The study appears in the current November issue of Neuropsychology, which is published by the American Psychological Association (APA)."
