What Does Silent Stroke Mean?

Q:  

I saw this equation in a diabetic magazine, “Diabetes + Hypertension = Silent Stroke”. Why? Is it so dangerous for the diabetics with hypertension?

 

A:

Yes, diabetes combining high blood pressure is dangerous.
Silent stroke here means diabetes patients who have high blood pressure has a high risk of deadly strokes.

The stroke is also called silent cerebral infarcts (SCIs), referring to the blockage of tiny blood vessels in the brain. And this blockage usually shows no symptoms, which makes it more horrible.

High blood pressure is more likely to put patients with diabetes in the high risk of major stroke, dementia, and even Alzheimer’s disease. Consequently, it’s vital for the diabetic to monitor their blood sugar and and vice versa.
