Health » Obesity Linked to Higher Stroke Risk
Oct 29, 2004


The researchers followed more than 7,400 men aged 47 to 55 for 28 years and discovered that a man with a body mass index (BMI) of more than 30 was 93 percent more likely to have a stroke than one with a healthy BMI of between 20 and 23, said a report in the Oct. 29 issue of Stroke.
That increased risk was present even when known stroke risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol were taken into account, said study author Dr. Katarina Jood, a research fellow at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Goteborg.
