Confounding is of violations of water-salt exchange. Again known fact that diabetics are significantly higher urine output compared with healthy people, and if you don't replenish water in sufficient quantity, the blood will thicken, which is another factor contributing to the increased risk of stroke. You can make a simple conclusion: people with diabetes are much more likely to suffer from this disease (according to studies in 2,5 times).

in addition, stroke patients with diabetes mellitus always been harder because of become hard (sklerozirovanie) vessels. In some cases, failure of the blood supply to the brain organism, so to speak, connects additional reserves or waste road - small arteries (arterioles) that carry blood flows into the affected area, bypassing damaged blood vessels, and restores the power. However, in diabetic patients small vessels and atherosclerotic altered blood flow through them is impossible or slow, so after the stroke, their recovery period will be much longer, the consequences for the whole organism is much more serious, in comparison with "healthy" people.
