Is It Possible To Develop Bipolar Disorder At The Age Of 70?
yes it can develop, it is called late onset bipolar disorder
Thanks for writing to us.
Age of onset of bipolar disorder in general is between 20 to 40 years. Almost 80-90% of cases of bipolar disorder onset before age of 50.
Bipolar onset after age of 50 is called late onset bipolar disorder.
Most of such cases are associated with some physical/neurological findings.
After age of 70 bipolar can start but we need to do detail neurological evaluation with Brain MRI scan.
Hope I have answered your query,I will be happy to help further.
