General Stroke Information
A stroke is a loss or change in bodily function that is caused from an insufficient supply of blood to a part of the brain. The function of the human brain is dependent on blood that must flow through its blood vessels. When blood flow is obstructed to any part of the brain, that part of the brain loses its energy supply and becomes injured. If the blood is obstructed for an extended length of time, the injury to the brain cells may become permanent and result in tissue death.

According to the American Stroke Association, stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States after diseases of the heart and all forms of cancer. About 600,000 Americans have strokes each year. About 4.5 million stroke survivors are alive today. (2.2 million are male; 2.3 million are female.)

Possible Causes of Stroke
An ischemic stroke is caused by a reduction of blood flow to the brain. This occurs when an artery is blocked or narrows to the point that blood flow is impeded or if a heart condition causes a lack of blood flow to the brain. A hemorrhagic stroke is caused by a leaking or bursting of an artery in the brain, resulting in bleeding in or on the surface of the brain.

Hypertension (high blood pressure) increases the risk of stroke up to four-fold. Proper treatment can diminish that risk by 38 percent. Cigarette smoking nearly doubles stroke risk, but quitting can slash the risk in half within one year and decrease it to a level similar to non-smokers after five years, according to the statement. Diabetes and physical inactivity can also lead to stroke.

Other risk factors for stroke include:
Atrial fibrillation a disorder in which the upper heart chambers improperly contract, potentially leading to blood clots that can travel to the brain and cause stroke. This increases the stroke risk approximately three- to five-fold in those age 65 or older or with additional risk factors. Treating the condition can cut the risk of stroke by as much as 68 percent.
Clogged neck arteries double the risk of stroke. Surgery to unblock it (endarterectomy) performed by a highly skilled surgeon can halve the risk.
Sickle cell disease in children magnifies the stroke risk 200 to 400 times. Blood transfusions for high-risk children can slash risk to 9 percent.
High cholesterol levels increase stroke risk in men 1.8 to 2.6-fold. Medication can ease risk 20 percent to 30 percent in those who also have coronary heart disease.

Possible Symptoms of Stroke
Various parts of the brain control various bodily functions. When a stroke occurs, proper blood flow is restricted from a region of the brain that controls a particular body function. Subsequently, that part of the body does not work as it should. The effects of a stroke depend primarily on the location of the obstruction and the extent of brain tissue affected. If the stroke occurs toward the back of the brain, for instance, it's likely that some disability involving vision will result. The effects of a stroke depend on a number of factors including the location of the obstruction (thrombus/blood clot) and how much brain tissue is affected.

Symptoms of stroke include numbness and weakness in the arms, legs and face; vision problems in one or both eyes; confusion; speech problems; difficulty walking; dizziness and severe headache.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Stroke
Stroke risk can be limited by avoiding illicit drug use; maintaining a healthy weight; exercising a minimum of 30 minutes daily; eating a healthy diet with five servings of fruits and vegetables daily; avoiding secondhand tobacco smoke; limiting alcoholic drinks to no more two per day for men and one per day for women; and controlling diabetes. Seek medical assistance immediately if symptoms of stroke appear. Quick treatment can help reduce or prevent a stroke.
