Stroke Doctor Q&A

Stroke accounts for more than 10 percent of deaths in Singapore and is the leading cause of adult disability here.

Do high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol automatically increase your risk of developing stroke? Can you reverse your lifestyle habits to prevent stroke?

If your loved one has a stroke, does it mean you’re at risk too?
