A stroke is an unpleasant event that can be prevented in high risk cases.

A stroke is an event in which a portion of the brain ceases to function as it is deprived of oxygen. If medical care is not at hand immediately the situation could become irreversible leading to complications like paralysis, difficulty in speech and swallowing etc. or in acute situations even loss of life.

Every cell of the body is energised by the nutrients carried by blood. But in some situations, the blood vessels that supply can be blocked by deposition of cholesterol leading to inadequate supply to certain portions of the brain leading to ischaemic stroke. It could also happen if there is a clot in the blood vessels which finds its way to the brain.

There is a third reason for the deficient oxygen and that is if there is a breakage of the capillary of the small blood vessel leaking into the brain tissues benumbing the area. It is a condition that is common in older people but if it occurrs in younger individuals it is due to diabetes. Diabetics are at an increased risk of stroke because the increased blood sugar levels tend to make the linings of the vessels thicker and less flexible and hinder the flow of blood. In diabetics, the body tries to rein in sugar levels by pumping in more insulin which causes vascular damage.

The risk factors for strokes; are high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, heart diseases, increased cholesterol and triglycerides and obesity. Last but not the least is a condition called as ‘silent stroke' wherein there is a transient occurrence of stroke as the clot seems to block the vessel and clear away and such individuals are known to have a major attack in the years to come if proper care is neglected.

All these conditions are more likely to co-exist in a person having with diabetes. Diabetics need to set goals and the effort should include lifestyle changes, eating habits, learning to relax and importantly following the drug regimen. An exercise of at least 20-25 minutes which involves walking will be a bare minimum while eating habits should stress on intake of foods that take a longer time for the gastrointestinal system to breakdown and convert it into glucose while keeping away from stress. Apart from the drugs which are used to keep the sugar levels under check and also insulin injections, there are homoeopathic medicines which can fill the vital gap of complementary medicine. These remedies are known to help the link at the level of metabolism in the sense that the lurking insulin is coaxed to be used by the tissues and a sense of balance is maintained.

There are useful drugs like Syzygium jambolinum, Gymnema sylvestra, Cephalandra indica, Ac. Phos, Selenium which help the quest. It is vital to realise that a check on diabetes can keep many a life threatening ailments away.
