How to prevent stroke.
Many consider stroke and heart attack to be the same. In fact, stroke is a brain disease and heart attack is a heart disease. Cancer is the leading cause of premature death worldwide, followed by heart attack and stroke. Every year 180 to 300 out of 100,000 people suffer from stroke.
Strokes are generally of three types. TIA, progressive stroke and complete stroke. TIA is a temporary or transient problem. In case of such a stroke, the affected patient recovers within 24 hours. But in a progressive stroke, the patient's condition gradually worsens. Again, the patient's condition does not deteriorate after going to a stage in completed stroke.
There are many causes of stroke. Cerebral infarction is a stroke that occurs due to blood vessel blockage and reduced blood flow to the brain. A blood vessel in the brain ruptures and bleeds into the brain; This is called hemorrhagic stroke. 85 percent of strokes are due to blocked blood vessels. Only 15 percent of strokes are caused by ruptured blood vessels.
Blockage of blood vessels in ischemic stroke is due to excess of cholesterol or bad fats in the blood. Diabetes, excess fat in the blood, lazy lifestyle, stress, bad diet, heart disease can also cause stroke. One of the causes of hemorrhagic stroke is uncontrolled high blood pressure. It can also be due to congenital defects of blood vessels.
Treatment also varies according to the type of stroke.
Blood fat should be reduced to prevent stroke.
Weight should be controlled.
Eat less sugary and fatty foods and eat more vegetables, fruits and salads.
Elderly people should avoid beef or mutton.
30-40 minutes of sweaty walking every day.

It is important to keep diabetes under control.
Controlling blood pressure is more important to prevent hemorrhagic stroke. If you have high blood pressure, you have to take medicine regularly. Do not skip any medicine. Irregular drug intake can lead to sudden increase in blood pressure and stroke.
