Reducing Your Chances of Stroke

Stroke, also called the silent killer, can occur with little or no warning. It is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, killing 4.4 million people annually. Those who survive a stroke may still be left with painful, potentially life-long consequences. Thus, it is important to do all you can to prevent strokes.

While things like diet and lifestyle play a large role in stroke prevention, you cannot always predict when you are at risk for a stroke. Some dangerous medications, such as the oral contraceptive YAZ, can greatly increase your chance of suffering from a stroke. YAZ, also called Yasmin or Ocella, has been linked to strokes as well as problems such as liver tumors and heart attack.

If you have suffered a stroke after taking YAZ, you should contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

Diet and Lifestyle Changes

Things like high blood pressure, hypertension, and high cholesterol levels can all increase your risk for a stroke. Thus, by controlling these factors, you can help protect yourself from a potentially debilitating stroke. Steps to lower your chances of suffering a stroke include:

  • Regular exercise
  • Low-sodium diet
  • A diet low in bad fats like saturated fats
  • Avoidance of cigarettes
  • Avoidance of heavy, frequent alcohol consumption

Sometimes, medication like YAZ can also contribute to stroke. If you believe that you have had a stroke due to YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you should consult a YAZ side effect lawyer today.
