Abstract

The prevalence of obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome has increased globally. These epidemiologic changes are likely responsible for a rise in stroke incidence among young adults, despite declining stroke incidence rates in the elderly. In this review, the authors summarize the current understanding of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of stroke associated with obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
