I had a stroke and later stress test was positive. Doc recommended for angiography. Do stenting a good treatment or I should control by diet etc.

In brief: Perhaps both

If you need a stent, your cardiologist will advise this.
However, for best results you'll also want to review your diet and make sure it's the healthiest it can be. Plenty of fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, lean proteins, complex carbs. Watch the salt and sugar. Your doctor may also want you on some blood pressure medicine, and will want you to be exercising in whatever way you can.
