Stroke means a sudden neurological disorder caused by a disorder of cerebral circulation. Circulatory disorders lead to an insufficient supply of oxygen and nutrients to certain parts of the brain. Lack of oxygen and nutrients causes damage and death of nerve cells in the parts of the brain that supply the damaged blood vessels resulting in damage to those functions that those parts of the brain control.

With a brain hemorrhage, which occurs when one of the blood vessels in the brain ruptures, too much blood enters the brain, so brain cells can die. The most obvious warning sign of problems with blood circulation in the brain are sudden disturbances in the work of the brain, from visual disturbances to paralysis. Problems with blood circulation to the brain occur as a result of a blood clot or stroke, most commonly occurring in people over the age of 45, and affect men more often than women.

Many diseases, conditions, circumstances, life habits and behaviors are associated with an increased incidence of stroke, so they are called risk factors for stroke. Some risk factors such as age, gender, and genetic inheritance cannot be influenced, but many risk factors can be acted upon and their impact reduced by increasing the risk of stroke. The most well-known risk factors that can be influenced and are related to lifestyle are smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, unhealthy diet, stress, physical inactivity and obesity. Some diseases are risk factors for stroke that can be affected such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, high blood fats, and significant narrowing of the carotid arteries. By detecting, eliminating, or modifying risk factors, it is possible to significantly reduce the incidence of stroke.
