Stroke Interferes Endocrine Activity

Stroke, cerebrovascular accident in medical sense, is a neurological dysfunction due to blockage in the blood vessels in the brain. As a result of the blockage, the blood flow to the brain becomes unsmooth, and oxygen supply is also reduced. Then, there's impaired nerve function. This incident will result in permanent damage to the brain.

The causes are: genetic factors, age, infection, obesity, smoking, less motion, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol, and coronary heart disease.

In light stage, the symptoms are: unpalatable writing, hands that can't follow orders, and slippers often missed or dislodged while walking.

In the event of the above matters, you need to be aware of stroke.

In advanced stage, the symptoms are: arm or leg suddenly weak or numb on one side, difficulty speaking and swallowing, blurred vision in one eye, dizziness, staggering, and loss of balance, uncoordinated movements, severe headache with no cause, mouth twisted to one side, vertigo, eyelids difficult to open, and fainting.

Broadly speaking, there're two types of strokes, namely hemorrhagic and non-hemorrhagic.

At the hospital, the doctor will immediately conduct examinations with computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging and angiography to see the extent of the damage, do blood test, infuse with food and drug that help to dilate vessels, and in cases of hemorrhagic stroke, perform surgery to prevent the spread of bleeding.

If you or a family member experience it, get to the hospital. The sooner the patient gets doctor's treatment, the better it is to prevent widespread brain damage.

If the patient is experiencing shortness of breath, give artificial respiration.

There's a theory that says when experiencing symptoms of a stroke, take a sterilized needle and stick to the tips of the fingers and ears. After that, still immediately seek medical assistance.
