How can you prevent a stroke?

Having one stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA) means that you are more susceptible to further incidents. The key is to not have the first stroke. Lower your risk by stopping smoking and losing weight. Manage your diabetes, because those with diabetes are four times more likely to have a stroke. Get high blood pressure under control, as this will also decrease your risk for hemorrhagic stroke.
