Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Meta-analysis of potassium intake and the risk of stroke

What the fuck was the point of this research? The earlier research was not enough to prove efficacy?

Daily potassium intake and sodium-to-potassium ratio in the reduction of blood pressure: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials  July 2015

Effect of high potassium diet on endothelial function  June 2014

Slash Risk of Stroke with More Potassium and Less Salt  June 2013

Why eat three bananas a day?    April 2012

This one is even more worthless, NO protocol, NO amounts and types of food to get to the dose suggested.

Meta-analysis of potassium intake and the risk of stroke

Journal of the American Heart Association, 11/04/2016
For this study, researchers played out a systematic review and meta–analysis of existing studies and evaluated the dose–response connection between potassium consumption and stroke risk. Overall, this dose–response meta–analysis affirms the inverse relationship between potassium consumption and stroke risk, with potassium consumption of 90 mmol (≈3500 mg)/day connected with the lowest risk of stroke. Methods and Results
  • In this study researchers looked into the observational cohort studies tending to the connection between potassium consumption, and incidence or mortality of total stroke or stroke subtypes published through August 6, 2016.
  • They carried out a meta–analysis of 16 cohort concentrates on in view of the relative risk (RR) of stroke comparing the highest versus lowest consumption categories.
  • They additionally plotted a pooled dose–response curve of RR of stroke according to potassium consumption.
  • Investigations were performed with and without adjustment for blood pressure.
  • Relative to the lowest category of potassium consumption, the highest category of potassium consumption was connected with a 13% diminished risk of stroke (RR=0.87, 95% CI 0.80–0.94) in the blood pressure–adjusted examination.
  • Summary RRs tended to diminishing when original estimates were unadjusted for blood pressure.
  • Examination for stroke subtypes yielded comparable results.
  • In the spline examination, the pooled RR was lowest at 90 mmol of potassium daily consumption (RRs=0.78, 95% CI 0.70–0.86) in blood pressure–adjusted investigation, and 0.67 (95% CI 0.57–0.78) in unadjusted examination.
