Alcoholism anticipates in 15 years Bleeding stroke
The study found that individuals accustomed to heavy alcohol consumption suffered stroke with a mean age of 60 years - approximately 15 years before the middle age of the other participants. The researchers also noted that heavy drinkers who suffered a stroke before age 60 were at a higher risk of dying compared to the other group. Hemorrhagic stroke is caused by bleeding in the brain, rather than a blood clot, as is the case with ischemic stroke.
Set in habits and prevent stroke
In Brazil, stroke kills more than infarction: are more than 100,000 people per year, according to the Ministry of Health. "In addition to abusive alcohol consumption, there are other risk factors for the disease that can be avoided," warns neurologist Maurício Hoshino of Hospital das Clínicas and Santa Catarina . Neurologist André Lima of Hospital Barra D'or explains that the internal walls of the arteries are traumatized by the blood flow that is stronger due to hypertension. . "These traumas form small wounds on the walls, which can block the passage of blood (ischemic stroke) or rupture the artery wall (hemorrhagic stroke)," he says. It is possible to control the disease with medication and healthy habits.
Cigarette substances cause blood clotting to increase. As a result, blood becomes thicker and blood flow in the arteries, in turn, is impaired, increasing the chances of a stroke.
Excess blood glucose (characteristic of diabetes) increases blood clotting , which becomes more viscous. "This decreases the flow of blood from the arteries and can lead to a stroke," says André Lima. But it's worth remembering that this problem can be controlled with regular medical treatment and healthy lifestyle habits.
"Cholesterol plaques and fatty contents slowly deposit in the artery, causing it to close slowly and prevent the passage of blood flow, "says Maurício Hoshino. This process causes arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and impairs brain oxygenation, increasing the risk of stroke.
Sedentary lifestyle and obesity
"High blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases are complications due to overweight and need to be prevented and controlled with good habits, which includes regular physical activity and healthy eating, "says Maurício Hoshino.
