What does TIA mean in a MRI test report
Hello Doctor, Glad to chat with you..
TIA means Transient Ischemic Attack
How does it affect one's health
Transient decrease in the blood supply to a small part of the brain leading to milder form of structural damage
This will affect the functions of the body which is controlled by the affected part of the brain
Usually the damage is mild and will recover with full health in more than 80% of cases
Ok.. How do we treat this ?
Treatment depends on the cause for such impairment in the circulation
My mom underwent a MRI on last sat..
depending on the age, health conditions and other laboratory parameters the cause can be identified and treatment formulated
She was advised MRI because she complained of numbness & tingling in the tongue & one leg..
She is 49yrs old
The part of the brain which controls the sensitivity on the tongue could be involved here
Doc advised her to take 'ecospirin AV' tab along with her regular BP tabs for lifetime..
Yes, Ecosprin is the definitive medication to prevent future attacks
Just wanted to understand if there are any other precautions that we can take in order to avoid TIA in future.. I mean, any changes in the diet, lifestyle, etc
Yes, based on her history I suspect the cause to be atherosclerosis
a low fat diet, good exercise,blood thinning medications like Ecosprin would be essential
Regular check up including blood cholesterol analysis and control, good Blood pressure control are vital
Is this a serious disease?
No,but the recurrence of such episodes could be XXXXXXX
the danger increases with every episode
Ok, I understand..
Is there anything I can help you with ?
She complained of numbness & tingling more five times in d last ten days..
Is yoga safe for her?
In most it does subside on own and with precautionary medications
Yes, Yoga is good
She experienced this thrice while doing yoga..
So I was worried if its ok for her to continue with yoga..
As such yoga is good
Perfect..Thanks a ton Doctor
This chat surely helped..
Thank u so much..

Is there anything else , I can help you with ?
