1 doctor agrees
In brief: Mainly 2 types
Ischemic strokes (where the blood supply is lessened) are associated with both hypertension and diabetes.
Hemmorhagic strokes (where blood leaks out of the vessels) is primarily associated with hypertension. Embolic strokes (where clots travel from the heart to the brain) is mainly associated with abnormal heart rhythms. But, hypertension and diabetes increase your risk of a stroke overall as well.

In brief: Wheel of fortune?
There is no "signature stroke" type for either of those 2 conditions.
I can you statistics but so what? Any type of stroke is statistically more common with either condition. The point is this: if you think a stroke is occurring, you are dealing with a true medical emergency--"time is brain". Get action fast, worry about statistics later.
