​A stroke can strike in an instant and change your life forever.

Knowing the signs of stroke and calling 995 for an emergency ambulance will help to improve your recovery.

But the best way to avoid disability from stroke is to prevent the stroke from happening!

Quitting smoking and taking care of your health, such as controlling high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol and diabetes will reduce your risk of stroke.

Dr Sumit Kumar Sonu, Associate Consultant from the Department of Neurology at National Neuroscience Institute (NNI), a member of the SingHealth group, will be answering your questions on stroke in this month’s ‘Ask the Specialist’ Q&A forum.
