Avatar m tn The study included 40 healthy men, between the ages of 55 and 70, who had no heart disease risk factors. Ten of the men had never exercised for more than two hours a week. The remaining 30 had exercised for at least seven hours a week for more than five years, either beginning before age 30 or after age 40. Their regular exercise involved either cycling or running.
Avatar f tn s doctors and what they did for him. Stroke recovery is a slow process, not only for the stroke victim, but for the family as well. It takes a while to process the event and all of the pain. Dad was making a miraculous recovery considering the extent of his brain injury. He regained great movement on his left, affected side and was walking with the use of a walker. Mentally he is still himself, with a few more hiccups. Words don't come to him as easy.
Avatar n tn In regards to your stated health problems, diabetes may increase your risk of another stroke, but should not adversely affect atrial fibrillation and the previously pacemaker. It's hard to comment on the effects of diabetes on CHF without knowing more of your medical history. I hope you find this information useful. Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only. Only your physician can provide specific diagnoses and therapies.
Avatar m tn For that population the ACC guidelines recommend aspirin of 81 mg or more to prevent stroke. As the rate of stroke is very low in the "lone" atrial fibrillation population , 81 mg is usual prescribed dose. In patient without a known bleeding disorder, 81 mg of aspirin may increase the risk of bleeding in case of an injury, but usually the benefits outweigh the risks.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, My name is Ally and I am a student at the University of Massachusetts in Boston.

Avatar f tn As others have c/o dizziness, I also have. On a scale of 1-10, I'd rate mine a 9. Not blacking out but almost. After going to doctors and many tests, noone could tell me why. Until my cardiologist suggested that I might be taking too much medicine. I'm diabetic and have high blood pressure. He also found that whenever I stand up (not suddenly) just normal and stand for a while--just going to the store and grocery shoping for an example-- my blood pressure will drop 30-40 points.
Avatar n tn The rsik of stroke is higher when in Afib than when not. However, for true statistics, i recommend you look on the american heart association website under their entry for a-fib. Being on blood thinner is the right course of action. Talk to a professional about the true risk differential. Best wishes.

Avatar n tn My mom(61years old) had a stoke 2 weeks ago. The stroke affected on left side of her body. She just discharged from the hospital and she is home. Her swallowing ability almost completely came back, and now she is asking for food ALL THE TIME, and it seems she will never be full. In the hospital we noticed she got a big appetite but we thought she may be board and that is why she asking for more food. She is over weight and she needs to loos weight or at least not gain weight.
Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements.

At what point of time recovery process will set in?

649848 tn?1534633700 I just read an article about the best medical device of 2018. As I started reading the article I wondered what it could be because there are so many advances in medicine these days; some of them we'd never think of. I read down a whole list of what it's not - things like things like robotic surgery, PETs to detect Alzheimer's, new ways to find cancer mutations, a new endoscope or microscope or even the good ole stethoscope...
Avatar f tn As my father is affected by Acute Brain Stem Infarct (Pontine Stem Stroke) which has all the vital functions like breathing, swallowing, sleeping, thinking, movements etc. He got the stroke on 2nd Mar 2012 and now he is able to breath by himself. Swallowing is not properly done, so Ryle's tube is inserted through the nose for his feed. He is not able to move and he is bed - ridden. On 26th Mar 2013 he vomited some black particles through the Treacheostomy tube.
