Migraine may raise dementia, Alzheimer's risk
🔬🧠Recent research shows that migraines may be associated with an increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s.🧠🔬
Researchers from the University of Waterloo, in Ontario, Canada analyzed data from 679 study participants aged 65 or older. It was found that the odds of having migraine were nearly three times higher in people with dementia than those without dementia. The odds of migraine were slightly more than four times higher in those with Alzheimer’s than in those without it. The study authors concluded that migraines were a significant risk factor.
