In brief: Ischaemic

Most of the diabetic related strokes are ischaemic due to disease in the arteries & ultimate closure & brain infarction.
However with hypertension haemorrhage s can also occur & sometimes an ischaemic infarct can bleed & become haemorrhagic.Often clinical features can distinguish between the two but mri/mra will provide the final diagnosis.

In brief: Ischemic

There are 3 major kinds of stroke: ischemic, hemorrhagic, and embolic.
Stroke and diabetes tend to cause the ischemic type - meaning hardening of the arteries and clot formation leading to abrupt blockage in an artery with loss of circulation beyond the blockage and death of the brain tissue served by that artery.
