In Vietnam, about 200,000 people have a stroke each year. The disease can occur at any age. In recent years, the rate of stroke among young people has shown an increasing trend.

Many young people are often diagnosed late, causing the patient to lose "golden opportunity" to recover and leave consequences for health. The danger of the disease is often unexpected, so it is necessary to take the necessary precautions. Here are suggestions of ways to prevent stroke.
Control risk factors
Regular health check is one of the essential jobs. People should regularly check for risk factors, control blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol ...
Early detection and treatment of high-risk diseases leading to stroke such as cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, and cardiovascular diseases. Since these symptoms are often so vague, the patient still feels well, while the illness can progress silently.
