Your stroke prevention action plan
You get the most bang for your buck from keeping blood pressure in the normal range, but don't skip the other things.
Many tasks are required to run a household. There are groceries to shop for, broken things to fix, and windows to wash. But you need to prioritize: it makes no sense to worry about the weeds in the garden if the mortgage payment is overdue.
The same goes for preventing stroke, which is a top concern for men—and with good reason. After a major stroke, survivors may face extended rehabilitation and permanent disability. The best medicine for stroke is prevention.
