Top 5 causes of Stroke

When a portion of the brain loses its blood supply and stops functioning, a stroke occurs. Brain cells begin to die within minutes if the blood’s oxygen supply is cut off. As a result, the portion of the body that the injured brain controls stops functioning.

Types of Stroke

There are two main types of Stroke

  • Ischemic stroke

It occurs when fatty deposits in arteries fragment and travel to the brain or when poor blood flow from an irregular heartbeat causes a blood clot, a blood vessel that supplies blood to the brain becomes blocked.

  • Hemorrhagic stroke

Although less frequent than an ischemic stroke, it can be more serious. This occurs when a blood vessel in the brain swells up and bursts, or one that is weak leaks.

Some individuals experience transient ischemic attacks (TIA). There is a brief blockage to blame for this “mini stroke.”

Causes of Stroke

  • High blood pressure

It is the primary contributor to strokes.

  • Overweight

Overweight may increase your risk of having a stroke. By exercising daily, you can reduce your chances of getting a stroke.

  • Heart Diseases

Atrial fibrillation, or an irregular heartbeat, which accounts for a quarter of all strokes among the very elderly, as well as faulty heart valves are all part of this condition.

  • Diabetes

Blood vessel damage from diabetes increases your risk of having a stroke.

  • Smoking Tobacco

Your risk of having a stroke increases if you smoke or chew it. Nicotine increases blood pressure. Your main neck artery develops an accumulation of fatty tissue as a result of smoking. Your blood becomes thicker and is more likely to clot as a result. Even passive smoking has an impact on you.
