Professor Kazi Deen Mohammad said strokes can be prevented. For this, stroke risks need to be known and controlled. Significant risk factors for stroke include high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, heart disease, obesity, excessive alcohol consumption, kidney problems, and a sedentary lifestyle.

About the symptoms of stroke, this expert doctor said: not being able to keep the balance of the body; blurred vision; crooked face; weakness in hands or feet; slurred speech.
