Does migraine increase the risk of getting dementia later in life?
Studies found an association between migraine and dementia, which are two leading causes of disability. Dementia is the most common neurological syndrome in older adults and migraine is the most common neurological disorder across all ages. Migraine is a complex disorder characterized by episodes of severe, often unilateral throbbing or pulsating headache associated with multiple symptoms such as nausea. I am 18 years old male with frequent migraine headaches. Will develop dementia late in life? Are these finding true? Suggest what can I do to prevent it?
@linkoln -Researchers have found a strong association between experiencing migraine attacks and an increased risk of developing dementia, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. A few studies suggest the link to dementia is that migraine attacks may affect lifestyle decisions, like not being active or having a healthy diet that increases the risk of dementia. More research is needed to find out whether it’s migraine that causes dementia. The only prevention for dementia is exercise, good food, and a healthy lifestyle. Thanks.
