STROKE

 STROKE (Transient Ischemic Attack)


 
 STROKE (Transient Ischemic Attack)
You consider yourself to be quite healthy, you eat well, exercise and go to bed early – but one day your arm felt weak and numb for no apparent reason. Possibly you had a TIA (transient ischemic attack), a mini- stroke. This could be warning signals of impending stroke and it is a good reason to go and see your doctor.

A stroke is the result of lack of oxygen to the brain, often caused by atherosclerosis or the rupture of a blood vessel in the brain.

  • Reduce your cholesterol to below 200.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Keep your weight within normal limits.
