CHARLESTON-HUNTINGTON -- MDTVNews.com -- In the fight against stroke, learn your risk factors and prevention measures:

High Blood Pressure
Have your blood pressure checked at least once per year. Exercising, eating a balanced diet and maintaining a healthy weight can help to control high blood pressure. High blood pressure can also be treated with medication.

Heart Disease
Heart disease is the major cause of death among stroke survivors. Treat your heart disease with regular doctor visits and possible medication prescribed by your doctor to prevent clot formation.

Cigarette Smoking
Cigarette smoking combined with the use of oral contraceptives greatly increases the risk for stroke. Seek medical advice to help quit smoking.

Diabetes is linked with high blood pressure and increases the risk for stroke. Treatment of diabetes can delay the complications that increase the risk of stroke.

Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIAs)
TIAs are small strokes or "mini-strokes" that produce stroke-like symptoms for a few minutes or hours, but no lasting damage. Treating TIAs can reduce the risk for a major stroke and should never be ignored.

High Red Blood Cell Count

High Blood Cholesterol and Lipids

Lack of Exercise


Excessive Alcohol Use

Drug Abuse (certain kinds)
