Stroke Risk Factors
Several factors increase your stroke risk.
The more risk factors you have, the greater your chance of having a stroke, as well as a heart attack. You can't control some factors, but you can modify, treat or control others to lower your risk.

You can change many conditions through diet and exercise. Others may need medication. Your best defense is knowledge. Talk to your doctor to find out if you have any of these health risks. More information
