Top Ways To Prevent A Brain Stroke

MBBS, PG Diploma in Clinical Cardiology
Cardiologist, Gurgaon
Top Ways To Prevent A Brain Stroke

There are two primary factors that are more likely to cause a stroke in a person i.e age and a family history. While both are inevitable, this necessarily doesn’t have to be the fate of a person. Brain stroke is entirely preventable as with the case of other diseases. By working on the potential health risk factors, a stroke can be prevented. Here is a list of few such steps which, when followed can pay rich dividends to a person facing the risk of a brain stroke:

  1. Blood Pressure: Blood pressure is the single most important factor that can increase the chance of a brain stroke. If a perfect blood pressure reading seems too difficult to achieve, a more realistic blood pressure target of 140/190 should be aimed for. Some of the common steps in order to achieve an acceptable blood pressure figure include reducing salt in the diet, exercising on a daily basis, regular intake of fresh fruits & vegetables and fast processed food containing processed fats. Finally, quitting drinking and smoking goes a long way in ensuring that a person is safe from strokes.

  2. Losing Weight: Obesity increases the risk of diabetes and blood pressure subsequently increasing the risk of a stroke. Being overweight, therefore greatly increases the odds of a stroke. A BMI of 25 should be maintained by engaging in activities such as walking, running and playing on a daily basis.

  3. Regular Exercise: Exercise is a clear mandate for people facing an increased risk of brain strokes. A moderate intensity exercise schedule for a minimum of 5 days per week is necessary. Some simple steps in order to achieve this include taking the stairs while climbing, joining a fitness club, 30 minutes of daily walk in a day etc.

  4. Moderate Drink: Surprising as it may sound, moderate drinking on a daily basis can dramatically reduce the risk of a brain stroke. Red wine should be the choice of preference in this case. It should be ensured that the level of drinking does not surpass more than a glass. Regular drinking in excessive quantity can increase the chance of brain stroke.

  5. Check For Atrial Fibrillation: This is a disease that is related to the heart due to an irregular heartbeat. There is a possibility of the clots travelling to the brain causing a brain stroke. Certain possible symptoms of this disease such as palpitation of heart and shortness of breath should be checked with a doctor to negate the chance of brain stroke. Certain blood thinners like warfarin and aspirin can shield against atrial fibrillation. A doctor has to be consulted before starting any medication related to the heart. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

My 28 year, s son gets uneasy & feels high blood pressure only when if he has to give a small quantity of blood for any of blood tests whenever needed. It happened first time when I brought him to a lab for just to get his blood group only, when the nurse pricked the needle & took a little blood he felt dizziness & fell down at once, this happened when he was about 12 years of age. He also feels uneasy if & when he has to go to in any hospital for any work. Is there any solution for this? As he has to undergo various medical tests when to switch over his job. He is a Sr. Mech. Engineer in Cement industry now a days.

Dear Lybrate user, Its just a Anxiety related blood pressure, its called White Coat hypertension, seen in people or kids when they visit a medical person or lab or any medical institute like hospital/ clinic. Such anxiety doesn't cause long-term high blood pressure (hypertension). But episodes of anxiety can cause dramatic, temporary spikes in your blood pressure. You do not have to worry if its temprorary event, try to make him relax before going for checkup, Now a days you can call Lab technician for Home blood collection. If this episodes continue, would suggest please get a Normal ECG and Cardiac stress test done to rule out heart condition .He can keep watch on his Blood pressure levels at home too.

Get thyroid profile done. Get blood sugar and total lipids tests done. Get bp checked. Get back with reports and associated symptoms if any. Reduce anxiety if suffering from it without realizing it, may be the heart beat becomes normal but investigations is a must.
