Why do strokes happen?
According to experts, blood flow stops when some of the blood vessels in the brain are blocked or ruptured for some reason. At this time the brain cannot do its work properly. May result in permanent or temporary damage.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), many people suffer from high blood pressure. In this case, blood clots in the blood vessel often cause the blood vessel to burst. And that's when people have strokes.
Studies have shown that 4 out of 10 people who die from a stroke can be saved if their blood pressure is under control.
Now diabetes patients are in almost every house. But there is no alternative to keep diabetes under control. This disorder also causes stroke.
Uncontrolled diabetes can cause inflammation inside the blood vessels. It also increases the risk of stroke. Therefore, if diabetic patients are not careful, stroke can occur.
Cholesterol is a waxy substance. There are two types of cholesterol in the body, good and bad. When bad cholesterol or LDL increases, it causes plaque to form inside the blood vessels. Due to this, blood circulation is obstructed. A heart attack occurs as a result.
Cholesterol also increases the risk of stroke. As this substance accumulates in the blood vessels, blood cannot reach the brain properly. Due to this there is a lack of oxygen. So if the level of bad cholesterol in the blood increases, make lifestyle changes to reduce it.
Everyone, young and old, is suffering from the problem of obesity. And when the weight increases, various complications are created in the body. Even fat accumulates in blood vessels.
Various studies have shown that having more than 1 inch of body fat increases the risk of stroke by almost 5 percent. So even if you don't keep your weight under control, you may have a stroke.
The risk of stroke also increases with age. It has been seen that the risk of this disease increases after the age of 55. After this age, the risk of stroke increases severalfold every 10 years. However, stroke can occur before the age of 55 due to various problems mentioned above.
