Diabetes results in a variety of microvascular and macrovascular alterations that frequently lead to serious clinical problems, one of which is stroke. Despite the fact that the burden of stroke has decreased over the past 20 years, current increases in diabetes rates pose a threat to undoing these achievements. It may result in impairment or even death by damaging brain tissue. Those with diabetes should control their blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight in order to prevent stroke.

Symptoms of stroke

  • Sudden onset of weakness of arm,legs or even facial paralysis mostly one side
  • Numbness in the face, arm, or leg
  • walking difficulty, lightheadedness, and balance issues
  • severe headache of unknown cause
  • Fainting

It is best advised to identify people at higher risk and placing them under preventive care. This can reduce morbidity and mortalities caused due to the stroke.
