A stroke (also stroke, cerebral insult, apoplectic insult, apoplexia cerebri, apoplex or insult) is a suddenly occurring disease of the brain that often leads to a persistent failure of functions of the central nervous system and is caused by critical disturbances in the blood supply to the brain.


Factors that favor the development of apoplexy:

  • high blood pressure

  • Diabetes mellitus

  • Nicotine abuse

  • Atrial fibrillation

  • Hypercholesterolemia

  • Increase in plasma homocysteine concentration

  • an age from 55 years


Measures to prevent apoplexy:

  • Normalization of blood pressure

  • Normalization of body weight

  • Optimal control of diabetes mellitus

  • Increase activity (> 2.5 hours per week)

  • No nicotine

  • LDL lowering in plasma

  • Normalization of plasma homocysteine concentration

  • Protective effect Use fruit and vegetables -> consume sufficient quantities every day

  • Consumption of high-fat cold water fish twice a week

Why is nutritional therapy important?

Nutritional therapy supports you in encouraging independent eating and positively influencing your health. A change in diet alone cannot cure the disease.

The aim is to supply all of the fatty acids, micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that are essential for you, energy and protein to the extent that your body is optimally supplied. For this purpose, foods that promote inflammation are specifically avoided and plenty of anti-inflammatory foods are consumed. Weight reduction is recommended if you are overweight / obese.


  • Prevent and treat malnutrition and dehydration

  • Nutritionally balanced composition of meals

  • Pressure ulcer prophylaxis

  • Individually oriented determination of the consistency of beverages and meals

  • Finger food

  • Independent eating should be guaranteed

  • Selection of suitable dietary foods

  • Prevent impairment of quality of life

  • reduce pain

Risk factors for malnutrition are:

Loss of appetite, chewing and swallowing difficulties (= dysphagia) and unwanted weight loss.


  • Drinks and food have to be individually adjusted in their consistency. Ie be thickened or thinned.

  • determine individual energy and nutrient requirements

  • Calculate the amount of liquid you drink and keep a drink log

  • an indication for artificial nutrition via a nasogastric tube or PEG may be necessary.

  • the use of finger food is recommended

  • a protein-rich diet is recommended

Important symptoms:

  • Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)

  • Paralysis (on one side or all of the face, arms, or legs)

  • Visual disturbances

  • Coordination disorders (including fine motor skills)

Classification of your weight - definition and classification of weight in relation to height.

Special percentile curves apply to children and adolescents; the BMI cannot simply be used here.

BMI and interpretation: BMI: body mass index. Formula: Body weight in kg : (body height in m) 2

Underweight: <18.5

Normal weight: 18.5 - 24.9

Overweight = pre-obesity: 25-29.9

Obesity grade I: 30 - 34.9

Obesity grade II: 35-39.9

Obesity grade III:> 40 = per magna

Nutritional therapy

  • Anti-inflammatory nutrition as a basis, individually tailored to you

  • Consistency-adjusted nutrition for chewing and swallowing disorders (soft, pureed or liquid)

  • Get enough fiber (> 30 g / day) through natural foods, possibly fiber substitution

  • Sufficient fluid: total fluid per day: 30 - 35 ml per kg body weight and day. Attention, this is not just a drinking liquid. The liquid from food (approx. 500 - 800 ml) must still be subtracted from this, so that an amount of approx. 1.3 - 2 l of drinking liquid is created.
