Can Older Women Who Suffer Tooth Loss Develop High Blood Pressure?

According to the American Journal of Hypertension, a new study indicates that there was a positive association between tooth loss and hypertension risk among postmenopausal women.

Researchers believe that people who experience tooth loss change their eating habits by eating softer foods and more processed foods. With the extra increase of high sodium foods, it can cause hypertension.

Postmenopausal women should improve their dental hygiene, monitor their blood pressure, keep a healthy diet, exercise and if necessary, lose weight!
