For migraine sufferers with obesity, losing weight can decrease headaches and improve quality of life, researchers report.



  • Weight loss in adults and children with obesity greatly improves migraine headache by improving all the main features that worsen migraineurs' quality of life.

When people lose weight, the number of days per month with migraine decreases, as does pain severity and headache attack duration
  • Weight loss reduces the impact of conditions associated with obesity, including diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, stroke and respiratory diseases.

  • Obesity and migraine are common in industrialized countries. Improving quality of life and disability for these patients will greatly impact these populations and reduce direct and indirect healthcare costs.
