Five modifiable factors account for the majority of strokes. Interstroke was the name of a study done on stroke and it's causes. It was a standardized, case-control study looking at the importance of established and emerging risk factors for the common stroke subtypes in different regions.
Overall, high blood pressure, was the strongest risk factor for stroke.
Along with hypertension, current smoking, abdominal obesity, diet, and physical activity accounted for 80% of the global risk of stroke, explaining 80% of the risk of ischemic stroke and 90% of the risk of hemorrhagic strokes. When additional risk factors were included in the model, including diabetes mellitus, alcohol intake, psychosocial factors, the ratio of apolipoprotein B to A1, and cardiac causes (atrial fibrillation or flutter, previous MI, and valve disease), these 10 risk factors accounted for 90% of the risk of stroke.
