Preventing stroke


There are many factors that can increase your risk of stroke, including:

  • your genes
  • your age
  • your diet
  • the amount of alcohol you drink
  • whether you smoke
  • how fit you are, and
  • whether you have any other medical conditions.

But there are simple lifestyle changes you can make to reduce the risk of stroke. This section explains:

  • the risk factors that you cannot change
  • how getting a health check can help prevent stroke
  • the importance of stopping smoking and drinking alcohol in moderation, and
  • how healthy eating and exercise can reduce your risk of stroke.

The advice in this section applies whether you want to reduce your chances of having a first stroke or if you have already had a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) and want to reduce your chances of having another.
