1. Sleep Disturbance & Stress – The silent killer
The disease usually comes from habits. If a person often stays up late or is always in a state of stress, then the risk of stroke will increase.
a. Sleep Disturbance:
Khi thường xuyên thức khuya buộc não cần được tưới máu nhiều hơn, áp lực bơm máu lên não càng tăng, khiến huyết áp tăng vọt, tạo một lực tác động lên thành mạch máu não lớn quá mức và hậu quả là vỡ mạch máu não dẫn đến đột quỵ. When staying up late at night, the brain is forced to need more blood perfusion. Once the pressure of blood to the brain increases, it will cause blood pressure to skyrocket, creating an excessive force on the brain’s blood vessel wall and as a result, cerebral blood vessel erupt that lead to stroke.
According to The Lancet (UK) – a medical journal, a study found that working too much for more than 55 hours per week increases the risk of stroke by 33%.
Stress causes the metabolism in the brain to be stimulated to produce many substances that are harmful to the brain. This long-term condition leads to atherosclerosis, creating a premise for thrombus formation, causing embolism, causing blood flow to the brain to decrease or stop. The supply of oxygen and nutrients to the brain is interrupted or stopped, brain cells die leading to a stroke.
Nowadays, stroke is increasingly in younger people and this is a wake-up call that we need to pay more attention to our own health.
