How Nutrisystem can help against the risk of AVC

The majority of vascular-cerebral accidents (CVA) are avoidable. According to an international study published in The Lancet, five known risk factors alone account for 80% of strokes. Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is an emergency: from the first symptoms such as sudden onset of weakness on one side of the body, difficulty speaking or sudden loss of vision in one eye, you must quickly call an ambulance.

This is the message launched by the specialists of the French Society Neuro-Vascular (SFNV) on the occasion of the 8th World Stroke Day, Friday, October 29, 2010. 130 000 to 150 000 people suffer from strokes every year in France. Every year 40,000 people die while 30,000 others find themselves with severe disabilities. According SFNV, AVC word could also mean “Quick Acting for the Brain’, because every minute counts. Treatments are most effective when they are administered quickly, before the lesions are irreversible. Nutrisystem is a diet plan that can save patients from needing this type of fire brigade saving.

Paralysis or sudden numbness on one side of the body, sudden trouble speaking or understanding, very brutal loss of vision in one eye are all signs that should alert someone even if they regress within minutes. Call for help quickly to get the patient in a specialized care unit, thus limiting the risk of sequelae and death. A carefully managed diet such as the ones provided by Nutrisystem will specifically take account the age of the client and will limit the risk of the type of stroke. Cerebrovascular disease is the leading cause of disability in adults in France, the leading cause of death in women and the second cause of dementia after Alzheimer’s disease and it all boils down to a bad diet and exercise regimen which can be alleviated by Nutrisystem.

Each year, 1.4 million people are affected by stroke in Europe and 12 million worldwide. The risk of stroke increases with the aging of the population. However, you should know that 15% occur in less than 50 years and 25% among those under 65 years meaning that Nutrisystem is not only for the aged people.

Hypertension, smoking, family history of premature cardiovascular event (myocardial heart, sudden death or stroke), excess blood fats (cholesterol), diabetes, heart rhythm disorders, abdominal overweight, stress are all risk factors. Nutrisystem ensures that all the avoidable habits are curtailed or eliminated and thereby elongating one’s lifespan.
