Medical Experts in Santo Domingo alarmed how Latin youths have strokes due to abuse of sexual stimulants

Dr. Suazo, who is the director of the NeuroScience Unit at Cedimat, said that around 1,540 strokes are recorded each month.

The Dominican Republic’s Public Health Minister Bautista Rojas Gomez joined physicians at the NeuroSciences Conference at Cedimat this past week, to express concern about the rising number of young patients suffering from strokes.

Neurosurgeon Luis Eduardo Suazo of Cedimat attributed the rise to the use and abuse of sexual stimulants by young men between the ages of 20 and 28. Rojas Gomez said there is a need for more education and guidance for young people.

He said that young people between the ages of 20 and 28 who display none of the usual risk factors like obesity, hypertension, diabetes, smoking or drug consumption are suffering from strokes, as reported in Listin Diario.
