Do you have high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, migraines or even a few extra pounds? You might be a candidate to have a stroke! OLIVIE will tell you how to shield your heart especially when one simply cannot resist certain temptations!
Pay close attention to your weight!
A study published in 2002 showed that a body mass index greater than 30, doubles the risk of having a stroke. "Obesity favors cardiovascular diseases, therefore increasing the risk of stroke," confirms Professor Jean-Philippe Neau, head of the neurology department at the University Hospital of Poitiers. More recently, it has been discovered that the distribution of fat alone is a warning sign: when it is rather localized in the belly, it is more dangerous than when distributed throughout the body.
In practice, the waist circumference on the hip should be less than 0.95 in men and 0.80 in women.
Lower your blood pressure!
"High blood pressure is one of the two most important risk factors when it comes to stroke," according to Professor Jean-Philippe Neau, head of the neurology department at the University Hospital of Poitiers. "Therefore, it is best to stay below the values of 140 mm for the systolic pressure and 90 mm for the diastolic pressure.When the someone is diabetic, it is even recommended to go below the numbers 130 and 80."
So it is better to have your blood pressure checked regularly, as high blood pressure often goes unnoticed, and pay attention to your salt intake. Too much salt will alter your blood pressure.
Stop cholesterol, diabetes and triglycerides!
"The second major risk of stroke is the poor state of the blood vessels," says Professor Jean-Philippe Neau, head of the neurology department at the CHU Poitiers. "Any enemy of the cardiovascular system is potentially dangerous in terms of stroke, so cholesterol and diabetes are particularly important to watch." Diabetes ends up weakening the vessels and multiplies the risk by 2. The excess of cholesterol and triglycerides, which promotes the formation of clots, multiplies it by 1.3!
In practice, blood tests performed once a year should help reduce these risk factors. The first steps to take are often dietary (have a healthier,more a balanced diet).
Devour fruits and vegetables
"Of course, we must know the risk factors, but it is also important to promote the protective factors, including the fiber and vitamins contained in fruits and vegetables," says Professor Jean-Philippe Neau , head of the neurology department of CHU Poitiers.
So focus on nutrients, particularly vitamin C in citrus fruits, red berries and green leafy vegetables, and potassium found in pulses (beans, lentils), potatoes, chocolate and some fish (cod, halibut, tuna and salmon).
Walk and keep walking!
"Physical activity activates the myocardium and therefore tones the cardiovascular system, it also helps to balance you weight, so it's a great way to prevent stroke," says Professor Jean-Philippe Neau, head of the neurology department at the Poitiers University Hospital.
So, if you are not an active, sports person, and the water in the swimming pool is too cold for a swim, put on good, comfortable shoes and go for a walk: 30 minutes of daily walk are sort of a universal solutions against many things, like improve your thinking, your health and lowring your sugar levels.
