A stroke can hit without warning. Oftentimes, it can rob you of your speech, your ability to move, and even your life.
And, while age can play a role, strokes aren’t reserved for the elderly. Surprisingly, about 10 percent of all strokes occur in people age 18-50.
Regardless of age, the key to limiting the damage a stroke can do is to be able to quickly identify the signs that someone is having a stroke, get them the right treatment, and get it within a certain window of time.
In this can’t-miss episode, Dr. Jeff shares what signs to look for and how to take fast action when someone you are with is suffering a stroke.
He also gives you the tools you need to minimize your own risk factors so you don’t become a stroke statistic.
