Diabetes and heart problems like heart attacks and stroke often go hand-in-hand. There are however certain factors that can increase your risk of developing these issues, some of which can be controlled and others that cannot.
What is a stroke?
A stroke is what happens when the blood supply to your brain suddenly gets cut off. This usually happens due to a blood clot, which blocks the blood flow. This damages the brain tissue.
Signs of a stroke include problems moving or controlling your body parts, pain and numbness, memory and speech problems.
The after-effects of a stroke can often include depression and other emotional problems.
