Stroke Risk Factors and how to Prevent it On time

There are many stroke risk factors that we usually neglect in our daily lifestyle but did you know that our brain regularly suffers from many smaller strokes during our sleep?

Luckily, in most cases the brain itself is capable of handling them pretty easily and without any consequences.


The moment when stroke with large intensity hits, in most cases can be Fatal for the person. If luckily the person that survives the stroke lives, the chances for permanent consequences are inevitable.
Sometimes it acts immediately and sometimes after a while. The medicine managed to compile a list of possible signs that may point to stroke appeared already.

At one party a girl stumbled and fell. Her friends suggested to call emergency services, but she assured them that she is doing well and that she fell because of her new shoes by stepping on one of the pebbles.

She looked pale and shivering so her friends helped her clean up and brought her a new plate with food. The girl the rest of the evening spent cheerfully. She was dancing and willing but she left the party earlier and left home.

That night, her husband called her friends to tell them that she was transferred to the hospital. Later the same evening … the girl died.

At the party, she experienced the first stroke, and later at home the another fatal stroke.

If her friends were capable of recognizing the signs of the first stroke that happened to her, the girl today might be still alive.



Some people do not die immediately. They often fall in an inevitable state which requires immediate assistance.

It will only take you a minute to read the following which can maybe help you save someone’s life …

A neurologist could help the patient who suffered stroke if it happened within

3 hours.

These are the 4 steps you need to take to be able to recognize a possible brain stroke:

1. Ask the person to smile – (it will fail)!

2. Ask the person to speak a simple sentence – (for example: “Today is a nice day. ” – It will be a problem for them to say that)!

3. Ask the person to raise both arms – (they will not be able to do that or can only do it partially)!

4. Ask the person stuck out their tongue – (if the tongue is bent, swinging from one side to the other, it is also a possible sign of a stroke)!


If the person shows signs like in one of the above steps, immediately call emergency,

explain them the state and symptoms of the person and maybe you may save their life.

It is also highly recommended, for the person immediately after stroke happened, to find

if possible one disinfected needle, blade, etc., and puncture the tip of their thumb or index

finger and drop a few drops of blood.

(This method is known as “Suyok therapy“, described as a first step for treatment of possible brain stroke appearance).
