Avatar m tn Of course there is a difference in preparation and lowering your risks to help prevent stroke or heart attack. Prevention is always the best approach, as much as possible that is.
Avatar n tn I am in the UK. I was very, very fit, ran, lived at the gym, windsurfed & kart raced. I had a very, very bad stroke in March 04, I was 42. I nearly died, which is an effect! Lol. Now in a wheelchair, speach is very, very bad & I am virtually paralysed. I wrote a 68,000 word book, which I cannot advertise here. Doctors said I would just have eye movement. I believe I am still recovering. Tim.
Avatar m tn I would say in general terms that loss of peripheral vision be it from glaucoma, stroke, retinal disease like retinitis pigmentosa or other causes is usually not something that can be rehabilitated. There are some new computer programs with vision simulators that try to help patients try to rehabilitate the use of lost peripheral vision mainly from stroke and there has be at least some encouraging, though limited, results with that.
Avatar m tn Well, it seems that this ‘paradox’ is not limited to France, but is alive and well in several other countries too including the UK, Germany, Austria, Finland, Belgium, Iceland, the Netherlands and Switzerland. In other words, it’s not a paradox at all. It’s only a paradox if one believes saturated fat causes heart disease. The thing is, there’s really no good evidence that it does.
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 f tn 4 The epidemiological association between elevated serum cholesterol and stroke risk is controversial. However, recent secondary prevention studies with statins have demonstrated a significant reduction in ischemic stroke. Statins probably reduce stroke by a variety of mechanisms, including modulation of precerebral atherothrombosis, thus preventing plaque disruption and artery to artery thromboembolism.
Avatar f tn Hi Dr Sean. i posted in hiv prevention and i would like to listen to your advise also. i had a single episode sexual encounter with a sex worker (unprotected vagina). 4.5 weeks or 32 days later i was tested with elisa method which i think it was second generation. I was negative for hiv but sadly i was diagnosed with herpes 2. I had since suffer from serious anxiety. At 7 and 8 weeks later i tested negative again but this time with a self test kit ez trust.
Avatar f tn If he was falling frequently, sometimes the risk of staying on these meds (bleeding with fall that could lead to death) outweighs the benefit (stroke prevention which is a few percent per year), which is something his physician needs to determine. Given his age, and history of blood in stool and falls, it is reasonable to keep him on warfarin (coumadin), especially due to the evidence in people over 75 on Pradaxa, and the difficulty of reversal with Xarelto given his falls history.
Avatar m tn Search for ‘Antiplatelet therapy for secondary prevention of stroke’. Under Aspirin, you will get the details. Good Luck. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Though they are of no immediate threat, all these causes, and the presence of ischemic changes can be a risk factor for future stroke.
Avatar m tn I'm a 50 year old male with a family history of heart disease and stroke and am trying to prevent it if possible. I exercise daily and maintain a healthy diet. Will this be good enough in the long run? I tend to worry about it too much because of the problems my parents had but I think my numbers are good. BP runs about 115/65 on average and my total cholesterol is about 100, HDL 45. My glucose is about 85 so hopefully this will keep me out of trouble.
Avatar n tn After reading the studies use one to back up your suggestion for an alternative treatment. Stroke can be caused by both clots and bleeds. Plavix is generally prescribed following a stroke from a clot. Often clots are caused by simple dehydration and inactivity. If you go off the Plavix keep well hydrated at all times with electrolytes.
Avatar f tn Though they are of no immediate threat, all these causes, and the presence of ischemic changes can be a risk factor for future stroke. Hence, prevention methods should include a healthy lifestyle, and a combination of diet, exercise, and medicines. Please discuss with your treating doctors.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I was discharged from a stroke unit in the uk yesterday after having a mini ischaemic stroke which I was frombolised for. When I was first admitted my troponin levels were at 365, dropping to 190 over a 4 day period. I'm unsure of the level now but I imagine it's lower. But I know healthy people are supposed to have no reading. I'm a 29 year old, otherwise healthy female - no drinking smoking or drugs. No history of strokes in the family.
Avatar f tn Why do you need travel insurance so badly? Some credit cards, like I believe AMEX, give you insurance for a variety of travel needs. You should really worry about getting health insurance as your chances of having a major stroke are about 35%. That's when the really big costs can occur. And now with ObamaCare no insurance company can turn you down. But if you didn't have insurance before March 31, you will now have to wait until the Fall.
