Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms are not a cause for alarm.

For stroke prevention, you should be on aspirin and statins for long term.

In addition, the risk factors, such as high blood sugars and blood pressure as in your case, should be closely monitored and treated.

Regular exercise and low fat diet are also useful.

Wishing you god health,
