Causes of Strokes

Of all the severe health concerns out there, the top on the list are heart attacks and

strokes. Strokes are one of the top causes of death in the United States. A stroke is also a

top reason a person has a long-term disability.

Since a stroke causes certain parts of the brain to suffer brain damage, that area of the

brain will remain affected for the rest of your life. Some recovery can happen, but it is

most likely they you will experience some level of disability in that area for the rest of

your life.

Why are strokes so prevalent? Men and women are at risk for stroke and the causes differ from

men to women as well. We will examine the risk factors and categorize them based on the

typical risk factors for women and men. Knowing the risk factors is the first step in

prevention so you can try to eliminate your risk of having a stroke in the future.

Causes of Strokes in Women

Did you know that strokes cause twice as many deaths as breast cancer each year? Women often

believe that cancer is the top cause for death in women when heart attack and stroke are much

more common causes for death in women than they might realize. The following is a list of

risk factors that are specific to women.

Being overweight
Lack of exercise
Having a family history of strokes
Having high blood pressure
Habitual smoking or tobacco use
Having high cholesterol levels
Endocarditis (infection in the valves of the heart)
Congenital heart defects
Atherosclerosis (when you have hardening of the arteries)
Heart attack
Heart failure
Disorders that cause blood clotting
Heart valve issues
Having diabetes
Taking birth control pills
Taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
Being pregnant
Suffering from migraines
Having a thicker waist in combination with a high triglyceride level (blood fat level)

All of these factors are cause for concern. Some mean that your overall health is poor. Other

factors increase your chances of having a blood clot in your arteries (like smoking and

taking birth control pills or HRT). If you have any of these risk factors, it is important to

broach the topic of stroke prevention with your doctor.

Causes of Stroke in Men

Many of the risk factors for men are similar to those in women. We will list them separately

so you can be aware of the risk factors for your gender.

Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries in the body)
High blood pressure
High cholesterol
Irregular heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation)
Endocarditis (infection in the valves of the heart)
Congenital heart defects
Heart failure
Disorders that cause blood clotting
Heart valve issues
Having diabetes

If you have low blood pressure, this can increase your risk of an ischemic stroke where your

blood vessel breaks and bleeds into the brain. As with women, if any men have the risk factor

listed, they should be consulting their doctor about the next steps they can take for stroke
