Common Questions and Answers about Stroke prevention supplements


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. I was told other than that it seemed there was no other problems. What is the normal approach to this problem? Will they want to operate?

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 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. The prevention of stroke typically depends on what are the risk factors a patient has. These may include aspirin, certain blood thinners, or cholesterol-lowering medications.

The authors concluded that, in apparently healthy persons with elevated C-reactive protein levels, rosuvastatin (Crestor) significantly reduced the incidence of major cardiovascular events. Their much-publicized claim, that this statin lowers the risk of heart attack by approximately one half, is technically correct though highly misleading.

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.

Avatar n tn ) 3)Back in December I heard that Bilberry supplements could help eyesight so I took a couple for my night blindness but the next day I had the most excusciating, pulsing pain on right side of head behind lasted for a few hours and all I could do was lie down and pray it would go away. My florescein angio showed a bit of blood in the retina that was dx'd as a tiny hemmhorage. Could I have had a vascular tauma? It was after that event that I noticed my vision dimming.
