UPDATE-Cardiologist says chronic low blood pressure “very dangerous”

Dr. Okechukwu Anthony, a cardiologist, has said that
chronic low blood pressure was dangerous because it rarely manifests obvious symptoms.

Anthony told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Friday in Abuja that low blood pressure was a “significant predictor of cognitive decline and the probability of developing dementia”.

 According to him, low blood pressure has no regard for age, gender, weight, cardiovascular, kidney or diabetic status. 

The cardiologist said that insufficient brain blood flow plays a critical role in the development of dementia, Alzheimer, and, perhaps, even Parkinson diseases. 

According to him, some experts believe that it may even play a primary role in the diseases.

 Anthony said that health problems could occur when blood pressure drops suddenly and the brain is deprived of adequate blood supply which could lead to dizziness or lightheadedness.
