Prevention

Prevention is the best and safest stroke protection. Living a healthy life can reduce or completely exclude some of the risk factors in advance. A healthy lifestyle includes:

  • a sensible diet with a high proportion of fruits, vegetables, low-fat and low-sugar food
  • regular exercise and sports
  • an adequate fluid intake – especially elderly people need to be careful because the "sensation of thirst" decreases with age
  • no smoking
  • avoiding stress
  • losing weight

If – despite a healthy lifestyle – some risk factors persist, please have regular medical check-ups.
