Common Questions and Answers about Stroke prevention pills


Avatar n tn risk factors as previously stated. Theoretically, prevention of migraines should decrease the chance of stroke, but if you had your stroke while not having a migraine then the point is mute. The stroke in migraines is usually correlated with the aura phase, this is where the vasoconstriction is thought to occur. The migraine phase is when the vasodilation occurs. I would try and prevent the migraine headaches, but this is only theoretical.
765802 tn?1263304451 Other symptom of forgetfulness may be a long tem effect of the untreated Stroke. Did you monitor your blood pressure regularly after that? The headaches that you are getting now may be a warning sign that your blood pressure is raised even now.

Avatar m tn An Italian study found there was a 45% decrease in sudden cardiac death in patients who suffered a heart attack when taking 3 omega pills a day plus a baby aspirin. What they found was that aspirin enhances the effects of omega, in that instead of 6 pills a day to get the required amount, you only need to take 3. In Europe there are new studies starting which will evaluate the effects of aspirin because this drug doesn't seem to be having the desired effect.

Avatar n tn I know severe headaches are signs of a stroke but I hope that is not the case. I am obese and in fact, I am having weight loss surgery.

Every time I go to the doctor my BP is fine and my cholesterol was fine as well.
469720 tn?1388149949 Women who smoke and take birth control pills are at greater risk of having a heart attack or stroke than are those who don't do either. Worse, this risk increases with age, especially over 35. The good news, though, is that when you quit smoking, your risk of heart disease drops dramatically within just one year. And no matter how long or how much you smoked, you'll start reaping rewards as soon as you quit.

Avatar n tn He is a noted cardiologist and the person who developed the South Beach Diet. He writes about aggressive prevention of heart disease even for those who don't have it. Even for those who do have significant heart disease and are at high risk, aggressive prevention is allowing them to live to a normal life expectancy--and to be healthy along the way. Certainly, there are things to do to take charge of your health.

Avatar n tn by Arthur Agatston, the South Beach Diet guy. Agatston is a renown cardiologist, and he writes about aggressive prevention of heart disease. One thing to keep formost in your mind is there are things you can do, and if you follow good medical advice and maintain a good diet, exercise, and a positive outlook, there is no reason for you not to enjoy a normal life expectancy. Once all this settles in for you, you will discover that, too.

560501 tn?1383616340 Vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and heat-related illnesses (for example, heat exhaustion or heat stroke) are common reasons a person loses a significant amount of fluid. Diuretics or water pills used to control high blood pressure are also another cause of a decreased amount of fluid in the body. Blood loss and other causes of anemia decrease the number of red blood cells that carry oxygen in the bloodstream, and this may lead to the symptoms of orthostatic hypotension.

Between 1958 and 1999, the Japanese doubled their protein intake, ate 400 per cent more fat and their cholesterol levels went up by 20 per cent. Stroke rates were suddenly 7 times lower and heart attacks, which were not high, dropped by another 50%. The French paradox is something always in research but no solid answer can be found.

Avatar n tn I developed high blood pressure due to birth control pills...I was 22. Once I stopped pills, my bp was back to normal. When I was 30 it returned. I would say I suffer from "white coat syndrome" as well. I used to get pretty nervous about getting my bp checked that I would cause it to go up worrying about it. They generally would take it later on in the visit and it would come down. Now I take a daily reading and when I go to the office I don't freak out anymore.
