Study Suggests that Lupus Patients Are At-Risk for Dementia

Other conditions people with lupus are prone to

Tests carried out in lupus patients also showed that they are more prone to develop cardiovascular problems such as high blood pressure. There are other events related to cardiovascular conditions that may be more common within people with lupus.

Nevertheless, there are no links between dementia and these other conditions since extra analysis carried out to these conditions revealed that high fat content and high blood pressure are all independent risk factors. According to the analyses carried out by these tests, people with lupus were 51% more likely to develop dementia during their lifetime.
