This book seeks to redress the balance by describing who is at the most risk of stroke and why. Anyone can have a stroke, but why is it mainly a disease of older age?Why do babies and children get strokes? What should we do for suspected stroke? How should stroke be treated and perhaps more importantly, how can we all make changes to our lives to prevent this happening to ourselves and our family. This guide features all the facts you need to understand why strokes occur and how to prevent strokes in the future. For those living with strokes the author looks at the most common problems and provides the most reliable solutions. This book will be of great interest to those who have had astroke or Transient Ischaemic Attack, and for those who worry about having a stroke.
