You can help prevent stroke. These are the 6 most important steps you can take to lower your risk of stroke:

  • Keep your blood pressure in the normal range.
  • If you smoke, quit.
  • Keep your blood sugar (glucose) in the normal range.
  • Stay active and maintain a healthy weight.
  • If you have heart disease, treat it.
