Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial: Alzheimer’s, Seniors, and Kidneys


About this study

There is evidence that high blood pressure can cause changes in memory and thinking as people get older. When the SPRINT study intervention was stopped in September of 2015, important data on long term rate of Alzheimer’s, change in cognition, and impact on the kidneys were not able to be collected. Participants from the SPRINT study will undergo a single SPRINT ASK visit approximately two years after their SPRINT closeout visit to assess blood pressure, cognitive and kidney function.
