In brief: Stroke
Yes. Cerebrovascular disease is the same process that causes heart attacks, chronic kidney disease, and peripheral vascular disease.
It is a complex process involving negative effects from high blood pressure, too much fat in the blood, platelet stickiness, excess inflammation and clotting proteins, high Insulin or glucose, excess sodium, and pscyhological stress which increases cortisol.
