Thank you for posting your query.
As far as I know, tanning
does not increase the risk of TIA or brain stroke. I agree with your thoughts regarding its adverse effects on the skin.
The traditional risk factors of stroke include diabetes
, high BP, high cholesterol
, smoking and heart disease
. If these are well controlled, and she takes a blood thinner (aspirin), she should not have a recurrence of TIA or stroke.
