Advances & More News / Directly from the USA: Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy Linked to Declines in Cognition

Women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP), specifically preeclampsia/eclampsia (PE/E), have greater declines in global cognition later in life, according to a study published online March 1 in Neurology. Michelle M. Mielke, Ph.D., from the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and colleagues examined the effects of any HDP, gestational or chronic hypertension (GH/CH), PE/E, and nulliparity on cognition in later life in a study involving 2,239 women enrolled in the Mayo Clinic Study of Aging with abstracted pregnancy information. Every 15 months, a cognitive battery of nine tests was conducted. Source: Advances and More licensed by HealthDay
