Poor sleep can triple risk of heart disease


Poor sleep can triple risk of heart disease

Washington, Mar 17 (Prensa Latina) Individual aspects of poor sleep can be detrimental to heart health. But if you combine them, the risk of heart disease can increase by as much as 141%, according to a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports.

Researchers focused on multiple aspects of sleep health, including regularity, satisfaction, alertness during waking hours, sleep timing and efficiency, as well as sleep duration and linked them to physician-diagnosed heart disease.

It is critical to evaluate health problems in this section to avoid having problems related to night rest, something that can increase the risk for heart disease, specialists stated.

Researchers found that while women reported having more sleep health problems, men were more likely to suffer heart disease — yet gender did not impact the overall correlation between the two factors. They also found that Black participants had more sleep health problems and a higher prevalence of heart disease than white participants, but the strong association between sleep health and heart disease did not differ by race in general.
