Stroke is a preventable disease and studies indicate that 80% of strokes can be prevented. Identifying the risk factors that contribute to stroke can help reduce the likelihood of having a stroke.
Incorporating changes in lifestyle substantially reduce the risk of stroke.
- Quit smoking
- Eat a healthy diet that is low in salt
- Lose weight and maintain it if necessary
- Exercise regularly
- Limit alcohol intake
- See your doctor regularly
