Your Score is:

  • If your score is 0 - 3, great news! You’re doing well at controlling your risk for stroke. Remember, though, that a single “High Risk” factor can put you at two times higher risk for stroke. Regular visits to your healthcare provider are important to identify health considerations unique to you.
  • If your score is 4 - 13, your overall risk is moderate. An answer of “I don’t know” is a yellow flag. Finding out can mean the difference between optimal health and a potential red flag. Minor changes in your controllable risk factors, plus regular healthcare checkups, can put you on the right path.
  • If your score is 14 or more, your overall risk of stroke is relatively high. Any one of these risk factors is a red flag. Make an appointment with your doctor soon to discuss stroke prevention.

As many as 80% of strokes are preventable.

Risk factors are cumulative, so reducing even one will lower your overall risk of having a stroke.
