Rein In Your Weight, Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels, and Diabetes
Being overweight puts you at greater-than-normal risk for high cholesterol, high triglycerides, early diabetes, full-blown diabetes, and high blood pressure.

How it raises stroke risk: High levels of cholesterol and triglycerides are warning signals that you're more likely to have dangerous buildup of plaque in artery walls; this plaque can rupture and form blood clots, or make arteries narrow. Dr. Wiebers advises his patients to strive for a total cholesterol of less than 150, bad LDL of less than 90, and triglycerides of less than 150.

Diabetes speeds up artery clogging and also seems to weaken the blood vessels in the brain.

Follow our program: Try to get at least half an hour of physical activity nearly every day of the week, and eat the same healthy diet recommended for controlling high blood pressure.
