Tooth loss linked to high BP in older women
New Delhi, Dec 05 (ANI): A recent study was conducted to find if there is any relationship between periodontal disease and tooth loss with hypertension. The findings suggest that older women who suffer tooth loss are more likely to develop high blood pressure (BP). The study observed a positive association between tooth loss and hypertension risk among postmenopausal women. Specifically, these women had approximately 20 percent higher risk of developing hypertension during follow-up compared to other women. The association was stronger among younger women and those with lower BMI. There are several possible reasons for the observed association. One possible explanation is that as people lose teeth, they may change their diets to softer and more processed foods. These changes in dietary patterns could be associated with higher risk of hypertension. There was no association found between periodontal disease and hypertension.
