Blood Coagulation That Results In Stroke?
From what I read through health articles, one of the causes of stroke is due to blood coagulation. Questions I want to ask:
Hello Agung, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
One of the most common causes of death, especially in Indonesia, is stroke. Stroke is a lack of blood supply to the brain caused by blockages or rupture of blood vessels. Without a blood supply to the brain, there will be damage or death of brain tissue caused by the unavailability of oxygen and nutrients. The risk of death will increase if treatment is not done immediately.
In a stroke due to bleeding, the brain vessels rupture. This can be caused by uncontrolled hypertension, weakening of the walls of blood vessels, and treatment with blood thinners (in cases of heart blockage).
While strokes due to blockage (ischemic) due to narrowing of the arteries of the brain that cause blood flow to the brain stops / decreases. There are two types of blockages, namely embolic and thrombosis.
There are so many risk factors that can cause a stroke, both bleeding and blockages include:
Some health diseases such as (hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, heart disease, previous stroke history.
Lifestyle factors - in these possible causes, a bad lifestyle will not directly result in a stroke, but will trigger some of the diseases above so that it can cause a stroke. Lifestyle is smoking, rarely exercise, drugs, alcohol.
Old age increases the risk of stroke.
From the questions you ask, there is a misperception about blood coagulation which can cause a stroke. Based on the theory of stroke / ischemic blockage is only caused by two things, namely embolic blood-clot or clots formed in other parts of the body off and carried by blood flow stuck in the blood vessels of the brain so that the absence of blood flows to the brain.
While thrombosis is the formation of blood clots (thrombus) in blood vessels, usually due to atherosclerosis which ruptures and triggers the formation of thrombus in the area.
Right now what you can do is:
Avoid risk factors for stroke.
If hypertension, diabetes, etc. come to the doctor immediately for consultation and routine medication to prevent a stroke.
Get enough rest and maintain your diet.
So the answers from me, hopefully answering your question.
Thank you :)
