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.
