Stroke question?
Can strokes be genetic?

Absolutely. I come from a long line of stroke victims. I will be the next in line.

And in responce to people that think that it is only the underlying conditions that lead to strokes that can be genetic that is not necessarily true. Other than family history, doctors (including many specialists from renowned hospitals) have yet to find an underlying condition in my family.

YES! The factors that can lead up to a stroke can be genetically linked. Risk factors are: High blood pressure (Hypertension), high cholesterol, high triglycerides, arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease, being male, race (ie Asian: African-American: American Indian), cigarette smoking, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.

Hope this answers your question. Take care my friend.

I am not sure if strokes themselves are genetic but many of the risk factors (like hypertension) are genetic.

Absolutely. Family history of strokes is one of the big risk factors.

Yes..they can...Stroke Warning Signs
The American Stroke Association says these are the warning signs of stroke:

* Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
* Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
* Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
* Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
* Sudden, severe headache with no known cause

If you or someone with you has one or more of these signs, don't delay! Immediately call 9-1-1 or the emergency medical services (EMS) number so an ambulance (ideally with advanced life support) can be sent for you. Also, check the time so you'll know when the first symptoms appeared. It's very important to take immediate action. If given within three hours of the start of symptoms, a clot-busting drug called tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) can reduce long-term disability for the most common type of stroke. tPA is the only FDA-approved medication for the treatment of stroke within three hours of stroke symptom onset.

The underlying conditions that can cause strokes can be hereditary but not strokes themselves....
