Preventing transient ischemic attack (TIA) is the best way to avoid a serious, life-threatening condition, like stroke. Doctors at Florida Hospital work with patients to reduce their risk of TIA using lifestyle changes and medications. If patients have a history of stroke or a family history of stroke, doctors may recommend more extensive prevention techniques.
These are some of the ways of preventing transient ischemic attack by improving your overall health and wellness:
- Stop smoking
- Eat a healthier diet
- Avoid high-fat foods
- Lose weight safely if overweight
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Be physically active
- Lightly exercise
- Know your family history
- Take certain prescription medications prescribed by your doctor
Each patient’s condition is different. It’s important to speak with your doctor before changing your routine or beginning a new routine.
