August 25th, 2018. Hackensack, NJ. Cross County Cardiology’s heart care specialists are publishing a new article discussing stroke and mini-stroke (transient ischemic attack, or TIA). According to the Hackensack-based center, these conditions constitute the third leading cause of death in Americans.
The Hackensack heart care specialists of Cross County Cardiology warn that, “Most strokes occur in people over the age of 65, but 25% occur in those under that age. Smoking, being overweight or obese, lack of exercise, and poor diet are considered major risk factors for stroke, as are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat), and diabetes.” They want patients to understand the risks of stroke, and how to recognize the symptoms of one so that they seek emergency care immediately if any of these symptoms appear in themselves or their family. They also want the general public to understand the risk factors for stroke, and how they can be reduced by changes to diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
Cross County Cardiology feels that if the public becomes more aware of the facts about stroke, they will be more likely to have regular checkups with their Hackensack heart care specialists, and thus potentially avoid suffering a stroke.
