Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Stroke are either hemorrhagic or embolic. Many hereditary , acquired causes are responsible for stroke discussion of all those is beyond the scope of discussion of this forum. Good balanced diet , lifestyle, avoiding of triggers, keeping balanced weight etc helps. Metabolic profiles like lipids, autoimmune disorders, procoagulants also decide.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
