Stroke risk calculator

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke risk calculator


Avatar n tn If you type in 'framingham risk calculator' in your yahoo search engine, you can find them and calculate your risk of having a myocardial infarction. I can tell you that aside from your risk of a heart attack, you are at a very high risk for mutiple health related complications including stroke, lung cancer, chronic lung disease and frank diabetes. There is no excuse for you to continue to smoke.
469720 tn?1388149949 But for the person who is doing exactly what they should be in terms of lifestyle and medical risk reduction for cholesterol or hypertension, there is little to be gained. Now lets look at a particular exception. You are a 45 year old male. Healty 5'10'' 160 lbs. You eat well. Vegetarian who hates sweets. You exercise 5 times per week. However, your father died at age 55 and lived just as healthy.
Avatar n tn Should I have at least 1 real, full measurement done? c) Depending on whose risk stratification calculator I use, I get wildly differing results as to what my risk is: o ATP III ( 1% o Framingham total cholesterol: 5% (over 10 years) o Framingham LDL: 7% (over 10 years) o Calc. using Framingham + CAC: 7% (over 10 years) Which do I believe? I'm inclined to believe the last the most: most specificity to me.
Avatar m tn Is it normal for meds to just stop working, literally overnight? Should I be concerned about my risk of heart attack or stroke? Any advice is appreciated.
Avatar n tn You risk is probably higher than average because you are overweight and you have known plaque on CT scan. By using the Framingham risk calculator, your 10 year risk is less than 1%. You have some no traditional risk factors that are not included in the risk score. My advice is to enact positive change like continuing to lose weight, exercise and eat right. Stop eating after 6 pm, especially before bed. Don't drink soda with sugar.
Avatar n tn So when the heart contracts with a high systolic blood pressure and coronary artery disease, the person is more at risk for heart attack or stroke due to greater potential for blood clots. However the coronary artery risk factors associated with aging are a result of are lifestyle choices over time. So now is the time to eat healthy and live a heart healthy lifestyle.
Avatar f tn As one ages there is a gradual shift in the strength of prediction of risk from diastolic to systolic to Pulse Pressure (PP). Heightened pulse pressure is also a risk factor for the development of atrial fibrillation.
Avatar m tn Thank you for your well thought out and knowledgeable reply Jon! Actually my story was so long (and sorry about that) it sounded a bit confusing even to me after I read it. I actually did not take the Niaspan as I am concerned about the possibly severe side effects. Plus the Dr. warned me about them himself.
Avatar n tn What I can tell you is that even people with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation have an increased risk for stroke and embolic complications from thier fibrillation. The fact youve had a TIA in the past, unless it is well documented that it was not associated with fibrillation is a very big risk factor for having a complication from fibrillation.
1280753 tn?1367761532 on thing my hep nurse told me that caught me by surprise, is that heart attack and stroke potential is increased when you are anemic. i sat in my garage for half an hour trying to catch my breath...scary...not doin that again. i forgot to mention that i don't start procrit until feb 11. if it takes 2 weeks to be effective, that's a month of falling RBC levels that can possible occur. i really don't want to reduce my riba intake.... ANC...i googled it and found an ANC calculator....wbc=4.
Avatar m tn Thoracic aortic aneurysm repair is a very complex operation in which a small but significant number of people will either die or have life-changing comlications such as a stroke. You don't want to take that risk until you absolutely have to. If the aneurysm should start to grow faster than expected, the odds change. If you should start to have chest pain that is thought to be related to the aneursym, the odds change.
1162347 tn?1293506770 • Taking an Aromatase inhibitor for 5 years after taking Tamoxifen for 5 years continues to reduce the risk of the cancer coming back, compared to no treatment after Tamoxifen. Aromatase inhibitors tend to cause fewer serious side effects than Tamoxifen, such as blood clots, stroke, and Endometrial cancer. But Aromatase inhibitors can cause more heart problems, more bone loss (osteoporosis), and more broken bones than Tamoxifen, at least for the first few years of treatment.

470885 tn?1326332637 my dr said there's a hormone ( i think it's the LH hormone) that an HPT can detect right before your period starts. i don't want to risk that happening again! i only have about 8 days left before i can test... let's see if i can hold out! lol. good luck to everyone.....
Avatar n tn i had a stange cycle and found out i m/c that month. depo has a high risk of m/c if you conceive shortly after stopping the makes you progesterone deprived and progesterone is neccessary for carrying a PG. i decided that all i could do was wait and let me body heal. at the 18 month mark i ovulated on my own for the first time and conceived and had another m/c. my dr has now put me on progesterone from ovulation to 12 weeks PG or AF comes to stop the m/c's.
Avatar n tn So I quit taking thm and started doing setts now i am alot lighter than i was and i feel good!
5658923 tn?1372211976 Thank you so much. The last answer you gave him he just emailed to say that was the first time he ever had to look something up to understand it. So looks like you have what it takes to entice his mind in some direction. I usually look up whatever he asks me to and cut and paste whatever some site says about what he asks about. It's always very medical like and I never understand it.
Avatar m tn I start to think that I may be having a stroke, heart attack or I drink to calm down. I use to go to the hospital when I was younger (in my 20's). I've been to hospitals for panic attacks the day after drinking more times than I can remember...probably around 25-30 times. Sometimes I wouldn't even go in the hospital. Just setting in the parking lot would make me feel better. I have drug my family and friends through these episodes with me.
162948 tn?1205256292 I had mine out Nov 7th, we waited one cycle for our own reasons, had a chemical pg at Christmas, got my last af on Jan 22nd and am now due Oct 28th : ) Andi
Avatar n tn there has to be an underlying reason and to just down doses of Vitamin D is not the answer because there lays the risk of us #1 overdose on Vitamin D later on IF we really don't have a Vitamin D problem or #2 if there is for example a Kidney problem as i have been trying to understand and investigate, we all or some of use need to see a Doctor ASAP and find answers and insist on answers or we could be in big trouble! Now see i myself am having major bladder problems and urinary problems.
Avatar n tn 15 days, that is why we schedule your pregnancy test at that exact time. You run the risk of the test not being correct. We will actually get a number with the blood test not just a 'positive' or 'negative'." So sweetpea2, don't loose hope!!! I am staying open to the fact that the blood test could still come back negative--however I hope not. We can't really aford a second attempt.
1294995 tn?1330666336 And she tried to liture me about being my weight and the chances of being high risk! Oh SHE WAS RUDE! I mean I walked out like damn! I know I am a little chucky...but I am not that fat to the point that I have seem women who are bigger then me, and having kids! Damn I am below 200 lbs!!!! She said that she dosen't think I can get prego with PCOS and being my weight! OH i wish I could show tell somethings I know! Because I know..
Avatar n tn was diagnosed with minor Endometriosis. However, the positions of the endo were awkward, meaning that they could not be cautorised for risk of puncturing other organs. so, I was put on the Pseudo-menopause (1 Zoladex injection, 4 weekly. Plus Tibolone HRT & another switch in my contraceptive pill, to Yasmin). I was on this for 9 months & throughout this, I was having light bleeds for over half of the time in total.
