Medical Conditions You Can Control. Make sure you're working with your doctor to treat these conditions, which make a stroke more likely.
• Atrial fibrillation (AFib)
• Blood disorders, such as sickle cell disease or severe anemia
• Diabetes
•Hardened arteries (also called atherosclerosis)
• Heart disease
• High blood pressure (also called hypertension)
High cholesterol
•Being overweight or obese

Also some medications, smoking, drinking too much alcohol, not getting regular exercise, illegal drugs and eating too much saturated and trans fat foods.

As far as treatment, that depends on what your doctor recommends following your stroke.
