People with diabetes face a higher risk of stroke because they often have other health problems as well as stroke risk factors. Remember, the more stroke risk factors you have, the higher your chances of having a stroke. Let’s see what will lead you to stroke!

What puts you at risk for a stroke?

Atrial fibrillation (AFib) makes you five times more likely to have a stroke, according to the National Stroke Association of The U.S.

Coronary artery disease, heart failure, an enlarged heart, and other heart diseases also make you more likely to have a stroke. Too much cholesterol raises your chances of both heart disease and atherosclerosis. High cholesterol contributes to plaque buildup in arteries, which can block blood flow to the brain.

People with diabetes are likely to experience stroke because they have not only other health problems but also stroke risk factors; these include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease. Overweightness, along with the less-active lifestyle that can come with it, raises the chances of high blood pressure, heart diseases, and diabetes.

You may have these conditions treated, otherwise they make a stroke more likely to occur:

  • Atrial fibrillation (AFib);
  • Blood disorders, such as sickle cell disease or severe anemia;
  • Diabetes;
  • Hardened arteries (also called atherosclerosis);
  • Heart disease;
  • High blood pressure (also called hypertension);
  • High cholesterol;
  • Being overweight or obese;
  • High blood pressure.

Additionally, if your high blood pressure is approximately about 140/90 or higher, you are at the leading risk for stroke. This is when blood pushes too forcefully against the walls of your arteries; they may be damaged or weakened and a stroke is about to happen. Ideally, try to keep your blood pressure below 120/80.

Bad habits also contribute to a higher risk of stroke. These can be listed as:

  • Alcohol;
  • Recreational drugs;
  • Smoking;
  • Eating a lot of saturated and trans fats, cholesterol, and salt ;
  • Not getting regular exercise.

You can change or manage some things that put you at risk for a stroke, such as high blood pressure and smoking. But with others, such as age and race, you cannot. You may need to talk to your doctor about your medical history and your lifestyle. He can help you treat any diseases or conditions and lower your risk for having a stroke.
