Just a quick query......
Does anyone know, or has anyone considered, why the CHADVASC assessment for stroke risk does not take into consideration a person's lifestyle?
Surely someone who is an overweight, smoking, drinking couch potato has a higher risk of stroke?
It is a shame, because these poor people have no incentive to improve their well being.
If I was a smoker with AF for instance, I would think, well, smoking doesn't make a difference to my stroke risk so I'll carry on and not stress myself by attempting to stop.
