Lifestyle and Stroke

Video transcript

Many stroke risk factors, such as obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol can be changed, treated, or medically modified. Some things you can do to control your risk factors are listed below.

Lifestyle changes

A healthy lifestyle can help reduce your risk for stroke. That includes the following:

  • Stop smoking, if you smoke.
  • Make healthy food choices. Be sure to get the recommended amounts of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Choose foods that are low in animal fat, trans fat, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars.
  • Stay at a healthy weight.
  • Be physically active on a daily basis.
  • Limit alcohol use.

Discuss lifestyle changes with your healthcare provider to find out what is right for you. The Medical Center Health & Wellness can help you get on track and stay there with free screenings, events and classes. Call 270-745-0942 to learn more.
