Study: Memory Loss Risk Measurable in Blood Test
It’s known that many things change for women after menopause, including the risk of cardiovascular disease and strokes. Determining your risk for these, and other conditions, may soon be a lot easier.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig explains:
Figuring out the risk for stroke and memory loss in post-menopausal women may soon be just a blood test away. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic finding that higher levels of clotting platelet fragments in the blood are in-line with higher risk for brain damage associated with strokes and memory loss.
Dr. Javier Provencio says the results, published in the journal “Neurology,” should help encourage women to make regular appointments with their doctor.
(Dr. Provencio) “Around this period is a good time to reevaluate your risk factors and ways that you might be able to prevent stroke and heart attack.”
The Mayo Clinic doing this research as part of a larger study on hormone-replacement therapy in post-menopausal women.
