    Your risk of stroke is broken down into two categories: controllable and uncontrollable. Then, controllable risk factors are broken down into lifestyle risk factors and medical risk factors; lifestyle risk factors can be changed and medical risk factors can be treated. Some controllable risk factors include: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and lack of physical activity. All of these risk factors can be decreased by eating healthy and getting regular exercise. Some uncontrollable risk factors include: age (being 55 or older), gender (being male), race (being African America, Hispanic, or Asian), and family history of stroke.
