Avatar n tn Second, what are the biggest risk factors for stroke? Clearly, prevention is the best policy, and even at the age of 26, I want to do everything I can to reduce any risk factors I may have. I'm in excellent shape, although I smoke cigarettes(working on quitting), and there's no family history of stroke (but type II diabetes runs in the family, although I don't have it).
Avatar n tn Sorry to hear about your stroke. The data suggests that aspirin a day is enough treatment for your condition. I know that it sounds like you should have treatment such a coumadin but since you only have 50% blockage, the aspirin is the best choice. If you have comorbid atrial fibrillation then coumadin would be the medication of choice. How is the other carotid? Yes, CCF takes medicare. From what you tell on the posting, aspirin is the choice for your condition and state of occlusion.
Avatar f tn Currently there are advocates trying to get more money for research for stroke prevention and stroke treatment. Its fast, its easy and its free! Thank you.
Avatar n tn I recently had an MRI following an incidence of weakness and staggering gait. I was told I had a small stroke of the cerebellum (couldn't tell if it was old or new). I had another episode in 1996 where I lost the vision in one eye. The doctor said that even though the MRI showed signs of a stroke, it didn't explain either of my episodes. I have had an MRI/MRA, echocardiogram and an assortment of blood tests looking for clotting disorders.
Avatar n tn However, side effects of this should be considered and asked with the treating doctor. Another stroke prevention strategy should be take low-fat diet, limit alcohol, quit smoking, exercise regularly and get your blood pressure monitored every years, especially if high blood pressure history is present in your family. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn My faith in the coronary team is rather shaken as they did not discover the VD until after the second stroke and even wrote to me stating that there was nothing wrong with my heart to explain either why the first stroke or why i was getting chest pains about 3 weeks after the first stroke and they carried out numerous different tests including a CT angiogram. It was following the 2nd stroke that they looked closer at the CT scan. Any comments would be most helpful.
Avatar n tn The association between migraine and stroke seems to be more prevalent in females with migraines that also have an aura and before the age of 45. Was the stroke on the opposite side of the brain as your focal neurological deficit when you have your migraine. Unfortunately, you are at a higher risk of having another stroke compared to the general population. If you have an aura with your migraine, you at even a higher risk (although the risk is only alittle).
Avatar n tn I have seen two neurologists and neither have offered a course of treatment that I am satisfied with. What would you think a good prevention treatment would be? Thank you,Kay Dear Kay: Sorry to hear about your stroke. The data suggests that aspirin a day is enough treatment for your condition. I know that it sounds like you should have treatment such a coumadin but since you only have 50% blockage, the aspirin is the best choice.

Avatar n tn Treatment of stroke depends on whether the stroke is ischemic or hemorrhagic and on the underlying cause of the condition. The long-term goals of treatment include rehabilitation and prevention of additional strokes. In your uncle’s case it could be ischaemic or hemorrhagic stroke due to high BP. If it is a ischaemic infarct, anti platelet drugs, anti coagulants and thrombolytics are employed in the treatment. If it is hemorrhagic infarct the hematoma needs to be evacuated with surgery.

Avatar m tn Hello, I am 65 years old and I am taking every day Aspirin Cartia 100 milligram in order to prevent stroke and to clear the blood. Stroke happened to almost every member of my family (grandfather, father, brother). Lately, because of the Aspirin Cartia, I got a brown-red stain on my arm. Should I continue taking the Aspirin in spite of the stain? Is the Aspirin really helpful for the prevention of stroke?
Avatar f tn This research was, obviously, for stroke prevention and treatment.
