Preterm birth may predict the risk of migraine, Finds study
According to recent research, it was found that there is no evidence for higher risk of migraine among individuals born preterm, as published in the Cephalalgia Journal.
Being born preterm is related to adverse health effects later in life. Preterm births (< 37 weeks' gestation) are increasing worldwide. With advances in perinatal care over the last 20–30 years, more than 90% of preterm infants survive and enter adulthood. There are no guidelines for the long-term medical follow-up of people born preterm. It was proposed that physicians should enquire about neonatal history throughout the life span, particularly because the risk of premature death is increased by 40% in young adults who were born preterm. Identifying preterm birth as a risk factor for early-onset chronic disease is critical in implementing preventive strategies and targeted screening to halt disease progression and to avoid premature death.
