Carotid artery stenosis, or CAS, can increase you risk
of having a stroke. There are several things you can do to lower
your risk including stopping smoking, controlling your weight,
eating a good diet, and exercising regularly. Currently it is
not recommended that you get screened for CAS if you are not
having symptoms. If you are found to have CAS, there are several
treatment options available to lower your risk of stroke.
