Common Questions and Answers about Stroke prevention supplements


Avatar n tn Another possiblity (though less likely perhaps given your multiple stroke risk factors) is could this be MS rather than stroke? Visual loss could have been optic neuritis and the "stroke" in cerebellum could be a plaque. Certainly don't mean to alarm you, just let you know that there may be other possibolities. There are special types of MRI that can easily distinguish between a stroke an dMS.
Avatar f tn I recently had a small stroke. After going thru many medical tests, I found out I have a very thin septal wall that is waving around. Also i have a mild regurgitation I believe in the mitral valve. My heart is mildly larger than normal but not called an enlarged heart. I have excellent collestoral levels and my arteres are clear.

Avatar n tn Could you tell me the pros and cons of chelation therapy in a nutshell? Does it really work for the prevention of CAD and if you already have coronary blockages can it really reverse it? If so, how long does it take before the arteries clog up again? Is the procedure safe?
Avatar m tn The causes of stroke are multiple and could include embolism from the heart or other areas (such as the aorta or other parts of the body), bleeds, atherosclerosis of the blood vessels, vasculitis (or inflammatory processes affecting the blood vessels of the brain), and others.

Avatar n tn Usually, aspirin therapy is recommended for stroke prevention as long as the benefits outweigh the risks. However, side effects of this should be considered and asked with the treating doctor.

Hope this helps.
