Hi My brother got stroke just a week ago, earlier we thought that it is kind of hysteria. We brought him to doctor. Doctor gives him some injections immediately and ask for CT SCAN and next day morning he give us optima and some other medicines. After CT Scan he sent us for MRI. In MRI report he asked us to be at Neurology center (PGIMER - Chandigarh). We found that he have a clot on the left side around broca center. In neurology center doctor stopped the Optima and given us Claphvaus , vitafol, satrix tablets. Could you please tell me that what was the reason of that stroke, and what are the special diets we need to keep in mind. One more thing yesterday I night, I got his BP test it was 140. Could you please tell me any other excercise and diets we can down his blood pressure. He is fatty. Thanks

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

The causes of stroke are:
1. Sudden rupture of a blood vessel in the brain due to raise in BP.
2. Blood clots blocking the vessel and thus the blood supply to the brain.

The treatment modality depends upon the nature of the problem and physiotherapy helps in regaining the strength of the muscles. Avoid foods with high calorie; encourage to eat vegetables, oats, white meat (fish), etc which are good to heart. Neurologist and a dietitian can help you in this regard.
