CDC’s tips on avoiding stroke

  • Get regular physical activity.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Choose healthy foods and drinks. Eat foods low in saturated fats, trans fat, and cholesterol and high in fiber to help prevent high cholesterol. Limit salt, which increases blood pressure.
  • Keep a healthy weight.
  • Limit alcohol. Men should have no more than two drinks per day and women should have no more than one.
  • Control any medical conditions, including heart disease. Some heart conditions, such as coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, or irregular heartbeat, increase the chance of stroke.
  • Have cholesterol levels checked.
