Dementia Risk May Increase with Clogged Arteries

Posted on February 14, 2016 by Disability Help Group

According to a report from the Doctor’s Lounge, the risk of dementia may be increased with those who have clogged arteries. Dementia could become debilitating and lead to the need for Social Security disability benefits.

A new release from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association indicates that not only can clogged arteries result in heart disease but it could impact blood flow to the brain, leading to dementia.

This has led researchers of the study to suggest that steps be taken to reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems, which could potentially reduce the risk of dementia including the following: 

  • active lifestyle (exercise);
  • not smoking;
  • maintaining control of blood pressure, cholesterol;
  • healthy diet; and
  • healthy weight.

Researchers also point out that early screening for those considered to be at risk of dementia would be helpful.

If you suffer from dementia or any other severe medical condition that prevents you from working and functioning normally on a daily basis, you could qualify to receive Social Security disability benefits.
