Stroke: Bad news, we're all at risk for having a stroke, heart attack, diabetes, cancer, etc. There's no way to guarantee 100% prevention/avoidance. However, we can best avoid strokes, whether 1st or 2nd line, by eating right, exercising regularly, stopping tobacco use, etc. Best to chat w/your Family Doc to discuss your personal risk factors. If you have atrial fibrillation, consider blood thinner.

You can also check some biomarkers associated with an increase in cardiovascular disease like hscrp, fibrinogen, myeloperoxidase, etc. to mitigate risk.
