Stroke: What is a good amount of salt? This is how much you can eat
STROKE is a dangerous condition which causes some brain cells to die. To avoid it you can make diet changes to remove substances that increase your risk, such as salt which raises blood pressure. However you still need some salt, or sodium, to function normally. You should eat this much salt to help control the condition.
(Reuters Health) - Even when the heart rhythm disorder known as atrial fibrillation goes away after treatment, patients' risk of stroke may still be higher than average, a large UK study suggests.
CONCLUSIONS: MiRNA-26a promotes angiogenesis in a rat model of cerebral ischemic via PI3K/AKT and MAPK/ERK pathway. PMID: 29917203 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: This pilot study suggests that FPP AOT is a feasible intervention and the research protocol designed would be suitable, with minor modifications, for the conduction of a subsequent stage 2 trial designed to verify the hypothesis that the adjunct of FPP AOT might improve motor performance in individuals with IPD.
Around one million people in Britain and up to six times as many in the US suffer from atrial fibrillation, which can cause a stroke and eventually lead to heart failure.
Stroke victims regain greater use of their paralyzed limbs with a dual-therapy approach than a single method, according to a study in Europe.

Conclusions According to the Barthel Index and modified Rankin Scale, early mobilization is an early predictor of favorable outcome. To Claim CME Credits Complete the self-assessment activity and evaluation online at http://www.physiatry.org/JournalCME CME Objectives Upon completion of this article, the reader should be able to: (1) Incorporate prognostic factors of good clinical outcomes after stroke in developing treatment plans for patients admitted to rehabilitation; (2) Identify acute phase indicators associated with favorable 6-mo outcome after stroke; and (3) Recognize the cut-off for early mobilization link...
Conclusions Both types of cane reduced lower limbs' load during sit to stand. When the cane was closer to the trunk, the load on legs was lessened, whereas the load on the upper limb increased. Upper limb's load during sit to stand was greater when using quad cane than using regular cane.
Conclusions This study's data support a role for eNOS in cognitive performance after stroke. This finding may lead to the development of novel interventions to treat poststroke cognitive deficits.
