Preeclampsia Linked to Dementia Risk, Study Suggests

Preeclampsia, a condition characterized by the development of high blood pressure during pregnancy, is linked to a 53% increased risk of dementia later in life, according to a Danish study that analyzed over 1 million women. Furthermore, women with a history of preeclampsia had more than three times the risk of vascular dementia, a condition that causes changes in thinking skills due to brain damage from impaired blood flow to the brain. The study, published in the British Medical Journal, found that the association between preeclampsia and vascular dementia appeared stronger for late onset dementia (over age 65). The study’s authors hope that by asking women if they have had a history of preeclampsia, doctors may be able to provide earlier clinical intervention.
