Stroke is a disease that usually affects the elderly, but its incidence is increasing in younger people. This has been revealed in a medical study in America.

The study, published in the journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, found that between 2011 and 2022, the rate of stroke cases among people aged 18 to 44 years increased by 14.6 percent and among people aged 45 to 64 years by 15.7 percent. The percentage increased.

This period saw a 7.8% increase in the rate of stroke cases across all age groups. Researchers have also shed light on possible reasons for the rise in stroke rates among young adults.

He said that the rate of stroke cases among young people has increased due to obesity and overuse of painkillers in America. Between 1999 and 2018, obesity rates in the United States increased from 27.5 percent to 43 percent for men and 41.9 percent for women. The obesity rate is highest among people aged 40 to 59, at 44.8 percent.

The study found that between 2006 and 2015, the rate of hospitalization for stroke among people under the age of 45 increased. According to the researchers, understanding the cause will help us stop its spread while also providing the best treatment for patients. Keep in mind that stroke is a disease that is a major cause of death worldwide.

If a person with a stroke is not treated promptly, the risk of death is greatly increased, and therefore it is important to watch for risk factors and symptoms.
