Belly Fat and Migraine Risk

Belly Fat and Migraine Risk – Curt Hendrix M.S. C.C.N.  C.N.S.

In a paper presented at the American Academy of Neurology, it was suggested that patients between the ages of 20-55 ( both men and women but especially women) who had bigger waistline, particularly with excess fat around the stomach, were at increased risk of experiencing migraines.

The fat cells can release inflammatory proteins called cytokines, which may play a role in causing migraines.  Gentle, but consistent aerobic exercise with moderate calorie reduction can help reduce abdominal fat and help chronic migraineurs.
