4 factors that cause a stroke


Dr. Alexander Myasnikov said that a high level of cholesterol and sugar in the blood warns of a stroke.

Myasnikov said that in addition to a high level of cholesterol and sugar in the blood, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption increase the risk of stroke, according to RIA Novosti.

He added that taking some hormonal drugs could be a precursor to stroke. Therefore, it is necessary to perform an ultrasound of the carotid arteries to ensure that they are free of plaque, adding that based on the extent of the narrowing of the blood vessels, the doctor decides what to do.

Myasnikov also cautioned against performing an MRI scan of the head to prevent stroke, because this process is used to diagnose stroke after it has occurred, he said.
