Alcohol consumption and the risk for different stroke types

Mittwoch 19. Mai 2010 von htm

Alcohol consumption and the risk of morbidity and mortality for different stroke types – a systematic review and meta-analysis.
Results
The dose-response relationship for hemorrhagic stroke had monotonically increasing risk for increasing consumption, whereas ischemic stroke showed a curvilinear relationship, with a protective effect of alcohol for low to moderate consumption, and increased risk for higher exposure. For more than 3 drinks on average/day, in general women had higher risks than men, and the risks for mortality were higher compared to the risks for morbidity.
Conclusions
These results indicate that heavy alcohol consumption increases the relative risk of any stroke while light or moderate alcohol consumption may be protective against ischemic stroke. Preventive measures that should be initiated are discussed. (Source: BMC Public Health, 5/18/10)
