Stroke Risk Factors

Risk of stroke is influenced by a number of factors. The more stroke risk factors you have, the higher your chances of having a stroke.

High blood pressure

High blood pressure (hypertension) is the most important known risk factor for stroke. High blood pressure can cause damage to blood vessel walls, which may eventually lead to a stroke.

High Cholesterol

High cholesterol (hyperlipidemia/dyslipidemia) - contributes to blood vessel disease, which often leads to stroke.


Smoking can increase your risk of stroke or further stroke by increasing blood pressure and reducing oxygen in the blood.
