Healthy Numbers
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Your numbers count! Evidence suggests that controlling your weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar can make an important contribution to brain health.

This section provides details on the latest guidelines established by the National Institutes of Health.

The first step is: know your numbers. All adults should have their blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight checked regularly. Blood sugar should be monitored beginning at age 45 or earlier if you have risk factors for diabetes in addition to age.

If your numbers seem high, talk to your doctor about the best way for you to get "in the zone."
