Preventive Measures: Given such a strong family history of stroke, it is very smart of you to be thinking about it now. The best steps you can take are preventive--exercise regularly, keep track of blood pressure, eat a reasonable diet, sleep 7-8 hours a night. Some patients will take Omega-3 fatty acids and Co-Q10 to help mitigate risk. Aspirin could be used, but discuss with your doctor. Stay Healthy!
