Reducing Your Risk for Stroke
Stroke is a very preventable health crisis, but many people are not aware of what can be done to stay healthy and avoid a problem. By making healthy lifestyle changes and monitoring existing conditions, you can reduce your risk for suffering a stroke a great deal.
Know Your Risk
Certain things increase your risk for stroke. For instance, if you have a family history of stroke or heart disease, you are at an increased risk for a problem. The same is true if you suffer from health conditions related to stroke. If you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes, your risk is increased. Chronic blood pressure problems can trigger stroke, but getting and maintaining a normal blood pressure range can reduce your risk a great deal.
Diabetics experience a decrease in the size of their small blood vessels. This can lead to a blockage of oxygen to the brain, which triggers stroke. Keeping blood sugar under control can help you ward off a stroke.
One of the best things you can do to prevent a stroke is to quit smoking. The chemicals in cigarettes cause you to develop atherosclerosis, which is the narrowing of the arteries in the body. Smoking increases your risk for cancer, heart disease, and a variety of other problems, so the sooner you quit the faster your health will improve.
TIA is a type of mini stroke. Patients who have suffered TIA have a greater risk for having a full-blown stroke. If you have suffered a TIA incident, speak with your doctor about aggressive measures you can take to prevent a future stroke.
Once you know the risk factors at play for a stroke, you can take measures to reduce your risk. Many of these things are appropriate even if you have a low risk for stroke. For instance, if you need to clean up your diet and add exercise to your daily routine, you should do so even if you have a low risk for a stroke. However, if you are at risk, make sure you consult with your doctor about the types of exercises and dietary changes that are safe for you.
More aggressive methods are available if you have a high risk for stroke. Your doctor might recommend preventative medications that can help you ward off some of the warning signs of stroke. These may include blood thinner and anticoagulant medications. This prevents your blood from thickening and forming clots that can block your arteries.
