Bel Marra Health supports recent research that shows stroke related damage can be controlled with simple steps.
Studies are showing that there could be hope for people suffering from strokes to reduce the damage that occurs as a result. According to Murray Flaster, MD, PhD and his colleagues at the Loyola University Medical Center “The period immediately following an acute ischemic stroke is a time of significant risk. Meticulous attention to the care of the stroke patient during this time can prevent further neurologic injury and minimize common complications, optimizing the chance of functional recovery,” (journal of MedLink Neurology, May 2012).
In fact, researchers have found that patients who receive stroke care at hospitals with specialized cardiac care units, have an increased chance of being discharged for home, experience a greater improvement in quality of life and functional status and have a decreased likelihood of stroke-related mortality.
If you are not fortunate enough to be admitted to a hospital with a specialized cardiac care unit after having stroke, the following recommendations from Flaster and colleagues, will help to reduce stroke-related damage and increase your likelihood for survival and a return to good health. His studies have shown that the following
1. Control Your Blood Sugar Levels
2. Consume A Blood Sugar Friendly Diet
3. Maintain a Cool to Normal Body Temperature
4. Remain Lying Flat for at Least 24 Hours After the Stroke
Nearly 800,000 people suffer from a stroke yearly in the United States and strokes are not only the leading cause of long-term disability, they are also the third leading cause of death.
CEO of Bel Marra Health, Jim Chiang says “the number of stroke related deaths is clearly too high. While stroke prevention is clearly the most important thing, if there are simple steps that can be taken to reduce the damage that is caused after they occur, I’m certain anyone at risk and their families will pay attention”.
