Benefits of preventing brain stroke
To prevent brain stroke, maintain a healthy lifestyle, control your weight, exercise regularly, reduce alcohol consumption, avoid drugs such as cocaine and methamphetamine, and avoid tobacco use.
Emphasize a healthy diet
Watch your diet and stay away from high cholesterol and fatty foods. Instead, eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables. Eat fruits and vegetables at least 5 days a week. Do regular aerobic exercise to lower blood pressure, raise good cholesterol and improve heart health.
Watch out for medical risks
Test your blood pressure regularly, quit smoking, control cholesterol levels and diabetes, treat obstructive sleep apnea, and manage heart disease. By managing all these things, the risk of stroke can be reduced.
If you have a habit of drinking alcohol, drink it in moderation, as heavy drinking increases the risk of high blood pressure and ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes.
