Are you at risk for a stroke?
Stroke occurs when a blood clot blocks blood from getting to the brain or a blood vessel in the brain bursts.
Lifestyle and medical conditions affect whether a person is at risk for stroke. For example:
- Do you have high blood pressure or high cholesterol?
- Do you have diabetes?
- Have you been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation?
- Do you smoke?
- Are you overweight?
- Do you avoid exercise?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, you are at a greater risk for stroke and should look for ways to change your lifestyle and improve your overall health.
