New Delhi: One in six people around the world suffer from stroke, making it the second leading cause of death worldwide, doctors said Friday on World Stroke Day. "The main problem is that people are not able to recognise the symptoms of stroke. If the patient is brought to hospital in time there are chances of full recovery. Awareness is needed," said Anand Kumar Saxena, consultant neurologist, B.L. Kapur Memorial Hospital in the capital.
Also known as Peripheral Arterial Diseases (PAD), strokes are caused due to blockage of arteries in the body."Stroke can be prevented by keeping a check on high blood pressure, diabetes, and high blood cholesterol. Be physically active and exercise regularly to keep weight under control," warned Renjen.IANS
