Stroke is a condition in which brain cells do not get enough oxygen supply, causing weakness in parts of the body whose movements are regulated in the affected part, difficulty speaking, or there can be a decrease in consciousness until death. In general, strokes are divided into two types, namely bleeding stroke and ischemic stroke (non-bleeding). In non-bleeding strokes, the patient's condition is generally better than bleeding strokes.
Symptoms of stroke vary widely, ranging from dizziness, headaches, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, vomiting, heartburn, weakness of half the body, difficulty controlling bowel movements and bladder, to decreased consciousness. The symptoms that you mention even though they seem mild can be the first sign of a stroke.
There are several risk factors for stroke, such as:
Uncontrolled high blood pressure (hypertension). Blood pressure above 200 mmHg is a very risky condition for stroke. In addition, it can also cause heart disease, kidney disease, and others. Diabetes mellitus. If your mother's blood sugar has reached 541, chances are you have diabetes, which also increases your risk of stroke. High cholesterol levels. Smoking habits or alcohol consumption Obesity. People who are overweight are more at risk of having a history of heart disease. Old age Lack of physical activity Therefore, even though hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol are diseases that can be passed down from the family (parents), this does not mean that the disease cannot be treated and controlled so that it remains within normal limits. With regular and disciplined treatment, blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol can be controlled with medication, to prevent complications such as strokes.
When a stroke has occurred, in general the patient's condition can improve or worsen depending on the treatment given, the type and extent of the stroke that occurred, and the condition of the affected brain cells. In mild strokes, where the patient is treated quickly before more damage occurs, usually the patient's condition can improve (although not completely healed as normal) along with physical exercise and speech therapy (physiotherapy) slowly. However, in strokes involving broad brain structures, the patient's condition can worsen.
Nurses in the ICU are intensive care where your mother's condition will be observed closely, both vital signs, medication, fluid and food requirements, and others. Therefore, entrust the doctor who handles while praying to be given the best for your mother.
The things you can do to prevent strokes are to get into a healthy lifestyle:
Get plenty of rest Reduce fatty foods and fast food, multiply fruits and vegetables Increase physical activity, at least 3 times a week Routinely control blood pressure, blood sugar, or cholesterol in health facilities, especially at the age of 40 years, and in people with family history of the disease Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption Thus, hopefully it can help.
