Protecting yourself from a stroke

Conditions such as AF and high blood pressure can increase your risk of having a stroke. With treatment, the risk can be significantly reduced. Small steps can make a big difference such as:

  • Keeping on top of your medication
  • Exercising more
  • Eating healthily
  • Drinking less sugary or alcoholic drinks
  • Stopping smoking
