Migraine and Metabolism


Migraine and Metabolism

G Casucci et al. Neurol Sci. .


Migraine is a chronic disorder with complex pathophysiology involving both neuronal and vascular mechanisms. Migraine is associated with an increased risk of vascular disorders, such as stroke and coronary heart disease. Obesity and diabetes are metabolic disorders with a complex association with migraine. Insulin resistance, which represents the main causal factor of diseases involved in metabolic syndrome, is more common in patients with migraine. A better understanding of the relationship between metabolic syndrome and migraine may be of great clinical interest for migraine management.
