I work in retail, I was assisting as customer buying a duvet, we got chatting as he was going to University, asked what he was studying and what job he would be doing once finished. He will be studying physiology for medicine and one of the pathways mentioned was Neuroscience!! Told him some of my SAH story. He suggested eating a collagen rich diet,  to strengthen blood vessels etc. Interesting and most of foods I enjoy except salmon!!

Interesting as I also seek out these foods quite naturally and I love a bit of smoked salmon. That’s my treat to myself.

That's an interesting discussion you had. I don't eat any meat other than fish but when I had my SAH was when I was closer to veggie than pescatarian. I've always had my own thoughts that I hadn't been eating enough collagen at the time. I've also got arthritic wrists so I've started upping my protein and taking joint supplements (I'm trying some that are for bodybuilders...the website advertising them is the scariest thing I've ever seen lol!!). Hoping it helps protect my head too! :) 

 

Every now and then I also get a burst vein on my finger or thumb without a trauma. Apparently it's just a random thing some people get but always makes me think my "vein health" isn't that good.

Weedrea,

 

I love smoked salmon and any salmon and a nice piece of cod unsmoked (Made self hungry now) lol

 

Noticed my veins in fingers seem prominent, now this could be old age or my veins in hand playing up ..Really I think it is old age (21 again I do lie with a straight face) ha ha 

 

Good luck Weedrea and all xxx

I've also looked at Collagen foods in the past and incorporating them into my diet... can't do any harm!  x

You got me reading medical research documents again! lol One  concluding quote from one that seemed interesting:

 

'Therefore, aneurysmal SAH should be viewed more as one aspect of a chronic general vascular disease, and more attention should be given to treatment of risk factors and long-term follow-up of these patients.'

 

So I'd presume having more collagen can't be bad.

I would be interested in the source of that quote. Thanks.

It'd help if I'd booked the actual report I copied that from! Trying to trace my surfing route....

This is the one with the quote...

Report is called "Long-Term Excess Mortality after Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage"

O' Win you do make me smile.

 

I find this topic really interesting and no doubt like everyone else immediately went off to do some research on it and found this article that gives a brief oversight of it

Here's another one I'd not heard of before:

https://www.thefreelibrary.com/Japanese+stroke+clues%3A+are+there+risks+to+low+cholesterol%3F-a07551979

 

Cholesterol good :)

 

Shimamoto's group suggests a mechanism to explain how low blood cholesterol increases the risk of cerebral hemorrhage. Because cholesterol plays a vital role in maintaining cell membranes, they say, a lack of cholesterol could lead to weak artery walls prone to rupture, especially when under high pressure. 
 

Researchers reported the first MRFIT findings in 1982. In a new analysis of MRFIT data reported in the April 6 NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE, scientists found a sixfold greater threat of death from cerebral hemorrhage in middleaged American men with total serum cholesterol levels lower than 160 mg/dl and elevated blood pressure above 90 mm mercury diastolic.

 

The inverse relationship between cholesterol and hemorrhage disappeared for people with normal blood pressure and for those with cholesterol levels above 160 mg/dl. The study was led by Hiroyasu Iso of The Center for Adult Disease in Osaka, Japan, working at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis with David R. Jacobs Jr. and colleagues. Iso was also a coauthor of the Ikawa Town study.

I bring that theory into doubt, I have very high cholesterol and yet I had a SAH
