Maintain a Healthy Weight
A recent study found that being overweight was linked to greater frequency and severity of migraine headaches in adults. In addition, a 2010 study found that overweight teens were more likely to report getting migraines and headaches than their peers who maintained a normal weight. Scientists are just beginning to explore possible explanations, but the relationship makes sense: Fat creates inflammation, and inflammation contributes to migraines, so it’s not a big leap to think that carrying extra body fat could make migraines worse. To help prevent migraines, lose weight if you are overweight.
