To protect yourself and the people you love, alongside recognizing these signs, you should work towards learning and reducing your risk factors. Set some healthy goals such as:

Eat healthy, nutrient-enriched, low-fat foods. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid trans fats.
Exercise on a regular basis. If you are recovering from a stroke, talk to your healthcare provider and rehabilitation team for a list of dos and don’ts.

Maintain healthy blood pressure. Avoid too much salt in the diet.

Control your blood sugar levels, if you are a diabetic.

Check your weight. Being overweight and obese increases the risk of developing severe health conditions.

Quit smoking. Smoking is hazardous for your overall wellbeing

Avoid alcohol. Too much alcohol triggers a rise in blood pressure and arrhythmias that can increase the risk of stroke. If you or your loved one has survived a stroke, even a small amount of alcohol can be dangerous.

Follow up regularly with your healthcare provider. Ensure proper medical care if you or your loved one has suffered a stroke before or if they are at high risk of getting one. Take extra precautions if you have any underlying medical conditions that increase the risk of stroke. Ask a Cardiologist online to know more about stroke.

Stroke is a serious complication that needs immediate attention. DO NOT overlook the warning signs. Act FAST! Quick treatment can save one from disabilities and damage that may last a lifetime.
