Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com

Stroke is a collection of symptoms due to blockage of cerebral blood flow or rupture of cerebral blood vessels.

Stroke can be experienced by anyone and at any age. But it often happens to people in old age.

Risk factors for stroke include an unhealthy lifestyle, having a history of high blood pressure, having metabolic diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol levels, and so on.

I suggest not to give any medicine to your grandfather without a doctor's advice.

You should bring your grandfather to consult with a neurologist.

In some stroke sufferers experience advanced symptoms in the form of: Impaired memory, changes in sleep patterns, personality disorders (depression, mood disorders), impaired concentration or even paralysis of the limbs, etc. These symptoms depend on the extent of brain damage, including age and other co-morbidities (such as high blood pressure, diabetes).

Handling will be given according to the results of the examination obtained, which can be in the form of drugs, physiotherapy and others.

Some suggestions to do at home:

-Consuming healthy and nutritious food. Lots of vegetables and fruit.

- Rest at least 6-8 hours every night

- Drink at least 3 liters of water per day

-Manage stress well

-Generally, a stroke is accompanied by a condition of high blood pressure. If it is indeed accompanied by high blood pressure, the patient is advised to reduce consumption of salt and fatty/oily foods

-Consumption of drugs according to doctor's instructions, besides aiming to overcome the current condition, the drugs given can also help prevent another stroke.
