What is a stroke


A stroke occurs when the supply of blood to the brain is suddenly disrupted by a clot, plaque or because an artery bursts. When blood stops flowing, the brain does not receive oxygen it needs and therefore brain cells in the area die and permanent damage may be done. The good news is stroke is largely preventable and treatable.

 

Why Does Blood Pressure Matter?  

• High blood pressure can have many harmful effects which can eventually lead to stroke.

 

• High blood pressure puts extra stress on blood vessel walls, causing blood vessels to thicken and break down.

• High blood pressure can increase pressure on the walls of blood vessels taking blood to the brain and weaken them, leading to a bleed in the brain.

 

• High blood pressure can cause blood clots or plaque (cholesterol and other fatty-like substances) to break off artery walls and block a brain artery causing a stroke

condimentum.

Things that lower your risk

There are a number of factors you can control to help reduce your blood pressure and chances of having a stroke.

 

• Know your blood pressure. The lower your blood pressure the lower your risk of stroke. To lower your blood pressure your doctor may prescribe medication.

 

• Healthy eating. Enjoy a variety of foods especially plant based foods including fresh fruit and vegetables, legumes and wholegrain breads and cereals. Click Here to get fantastic Smoothie recipes from Melanie McGrice

 

• Get active. Try to exercise regularly. At least 30 minutes of moderate exercise on most days of the week is recommended. Click Here to get our workout tips from Steph Prem

 

• Drop the salt. Cut down on takeaway foods and don’t add salt at the table or when cooking.

 

• Limit alcohol. Stay within recommended limits for drinking alcohol (no more than two standard drinks per day).

 

• Be smoke-free. Quit smoking. Call Quitline on 13 7848.

 

• Know about the medication you are taking. Some medication, such as the oral contraceptive pill may increase the risk of stroke. Please talk to your doctor, pharmacist or health professional if you are concerned.
