One in five people who have a stroke die within a month according to medical research. Of those that survive, most experience some level of disability ~ ranging from difficulties with movement or speech, to memory and sensory problems. The best way to find whether someone is having a stroke is to remember
Facial weakness – can the person smile?
Arm weakness – can the person raise their arms above their head?
Speech – can the person understand what you say or speak clearly?
Time – call immediately professional if you see someone with these signs.
Also certain factors can increase the risk of stroke. Some of these are beyond your control – such as age, gender and family history – but adopting the following lifestyle measures will cut your risk: Not smoking. Limit the alcohol consumption. Water an essence of life; don’t forget to make it a part of yours. Stress to avoid.
To your wellbeing! Enjoy.
