Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)

Prevention of Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)

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.
