From the USA: Vigorous Physical Activity May Preserve Cognitive Function in High-Risk HTN

For high-risk patients with hypertension, vigorous physical activity (VPA) may preserve cognitive function, according to a study published online June 6 in Alzheimer’s & Dementia.

Richard Kazibwe, M.D., from the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and colleagues categorized the baseline self-reported frequency of VPA into low and high (less than one and at least one session/week, respectively) and examined the association between VPA categories with incident mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and probable dementia events among individuals with high-risk hypertension.
