I think keeping your blood pressure to an acceptable level is the most important thing in stroke prevention. Also, making sure you eat lots of fruits and vegetables is good in terms of keeping pressure down and making sure that you have lots of vitamins including postassium. For further information I think you should read the pages at web md. There is alot of medical information on there.

Hey dixie! How are you doing? It's been a while. Well, the best way to prevent stroke is to manage your blood pressure. There are lots of factors that contribute to high blood pressure. To name a few these are: 1. Inheritance, sometimes a relative is diagnosed to have passive hypertension (hypertension with no direct cause) and is brought down to the next generation. 2. High Cholesterol Levels, things to watch out for are Triglycerides and LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein). They are the bad ones and has to be below the maximum acceptable levels. 3. Lifestyle. As with #2, it includes eating. Others would be vices such as smoking and drinking. Less sleep can cause abnormal blood pressure as well. 4. Emotions. Some people get really emotional most of the time which elevates blood pressure quickly. There may be some other causes. You could ask your Cardiologist more about it. But basically managing the aforementioned, would lessen the risk of having a stroke. Take care!
