Hi! I’m robo-Suzie and today I’ll talk to
you about How Does Diabetes and Hypertension Affect Your Brain Health.
Also don’t forget to check out the link below, to find out, how this guy reversed his diabetes!
Turns out, the diabetes industry is selling us fake research!
But back to our topic. Diabetes is when the body is unable to regulate
the amount of glucose released into the bloodstream after eating a meal. This can have a long
term impact on the diabetic who will find that the condition will affect everything
from their waterworks to their brain function. Studies have repeatedly shown that diabetes
slows down mental function and impairs the ability to complete cognitive tasks quickly
and easily. Language is also affected as is the ability to recall information. It should
be noted however, that the results of the studies found that although mental function
was compromised, it did not interfere with daily life. Although diabetics have general health concerns
due to the nature of their condition, having diabetes also increases the risk of heart
attacks and stroke. These factors increase the likelihood of memory problems. Studies have also found that patients with
severe diabetes have poor cognitive abilities because the nerves cells in the brain were
damaged due to the disease. The chance of developing Alzheimer’s or dementia was found
to be highest in those with poorly controlled diabetes. This should set alarm bells ringing
for all diabetics, as it is just another problem to add to their list of current problems. Hypertension is when a patient repeatedly
suffers from high blood pressure, or where blood pressure is uncontrolled so as to cause
concern for the sufferer. Some of the main problems associated with hypertension include
a greater risk of heart attacks and strokes. The other main concern with hypertensive patients
is that the high blood pressure can cause a brain hemorrhage. A brain hemorrhage occurs when the blood vessels
inside the brain burst due to increased pressure, causing bleeding in the brain. Hypertension
can also cause aneurysms in the brain. These are weakened vessels in the brain where the
blood pools together and bulges. Left untreated, an aneurysm can burst causing a hemorrhage
and eventually severe brain damage or even death. It is important to understand that the severity
of a hemorrhage due to hypertension is made worse by the presence of diabetes, which can
further weaken the blood vessels in the brain. In patients who have both hypertension and
diabetes, managing both conditions is critical to preserving their brain health.
One of the worst aspects of aging is the effect it has on the brain and all mental abilities.
Naturally as the body ages, so too does the mind. Having a condition such as diabetes
and hypertension can easily age your brain quicker than it would a healthy person. Preventing brain aging requires looking after
one’s health coupled with training your brain. This will improve performance and delay the
onset of age related memory problems. Taking simple measures such as eating less salt and
sugar, decreasing the amount of fat in your diet and eating lots of fresh fruit, vegetables
and oily fish all help to improve overall health as well as brain health. Measures should
be taken to control diabetes and hypertension correctly, and it is advised to see your doctor
who can decide on the best treatment for you. Do not underestimate the power of exercise
either, as this helps to reduce blood pressure and helps to bring high blood sugar levels
on an even keel. A healthy diet and exercise is the minimum requirement to look after your
body and your brain. As a diabetic or hypertensive, you should
also take brain training very seriously if you want to prevent long-term memory and mental
problems. Research has found that those who train their brains with specific exercises
and challenge their minds with daily puzzles have sharper minds than those who do not. A proper brain training program should be
an integral part of your lifestyle if you want to stay mentally active for years to
come. That’s it! Thank you.
