Are You at Risk for a Stroke
(Brain Attack)?

Take this simple test to see if you might be at risk for a stroke:

1). Have either of your parents, grandparents, or any one of your siblings or cousins had a stroke?
Yes
No
2). Are you 65 or older?
Yes
No
3). Do you have diabetes?
Yes
No
4). Do you have more than 6 alcoholic drinks a week?
Yes
No
5). Do you have high blood pressure?
Yes
No
6). Do you smoke?
Yes
No
7). Do you have high cholesterol?
Yes
No
8). Do you exercise less than 3 times a week?
Yes
No
9). Are you more than 20% over your ideal weight?
Yes
No
10). Have you experienced dizziness or blurred vision?
Yes

If you answered "yes" to more than one question, then your risk for a stroke is increased. Your risk, however, can be reduced through diet, by cessation of smoking, reduced alcohol intake, increased exercise and regular visits to your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
