There is a high rate of recurrent stroke after an ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack.  Identification and early management of modifiable risk factors, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, cardiac disease, behavioral interventions such as diet, physical activity, and smoking cessation have been shown to be effective in secondary stroke prevention.  An interdisciplinary approach toward aggressive management of these risk factors can be effective to prevent stroke in patients.  This activity addresses the treatment approach and discusses secondary stroke prevention.

Post-stroke and TIA patients return to their primary provider with a variety of questions, new diagnoses, and more often than not, disabilities that change the way they will be living their life going forward.  Engaging with these patients in an empowering manner by focusing on the main tenets of Lifestyle Medicine can aid to shift the focus for these patients from what they have lost to what they can gain as they face their stroke recovery process.
