Women older than forty should keep their blood pressure checked. Researchers claim that women of this age are at greater risk of heart attack. Researchers at the University of Bergen, Norway have proved that women experiencing high blood pressure at the age of 50 have twice the risk of heart attack as compared to normal women. These researchers included 6,381 women and 5,948 men in their research. All of them were 41 years old. A study by Dr. Ester Kringland published in the European Journal of Preventive Cordiology explained how high blood pressure in women and men reflects different small veins.
He also mentioned that the weight, diet and exercise of a person play an important role in maintaining blood pressure normal. Young women have lower average blood pressure than men. But after the age of 30, the risk of high blood pressure increases. Therefore, women should keep their blood pressure checked regularly during this age of age. Also, it is important for them to keep their weight under control, take healthy diet and exercise regularly. The risk of blood pressure can also be reduced by staying away from smoking and avoiding excess alcohol and salt.
The risk of high BP in men aged between 16 and 24 years was observed in England at 5% and in women at 1%. Whereas in women and men 65 to 74 years, this risk increases to 58%. According to a study by Professor Brian Williams of Medicine at University College London, women with high blood pressure after the age of 40 have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease than men. This study by the researchers has been published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
