A new study suggests that people who sleep well are less likely to have a stroke.
Researchers say suboptimal sleep is linked to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
And 9 out of 10 people usually can’t get a good night’s sleep, they said.
“Given our busy 24/7 lives, we would have expected a lower percentage of people who slept well,” said study author Aboubakari Nambiema, PhD, from the French National Institute of Health and Medicine in Paris. I’m here.
“The importance of sleep quality and quantity for heart health should be taught early in life when healthy behaviors are established.
“Minimizing noise at night and stress at work can both help improve sleep.”
Researchers examined data from 7,200 men and women between the ages of 50 and 75 in France.
At the start of the study, between 2008 and 2011, researchers collected various health information from participants, including sleep habits.
They were evaluated again during two follow-up visits, and researchers followed participants for up to 10 years to see if they developed heart disease or stroke.
At the start of the study, 10% of participants had an “optimal” sleep score. They weren’t insomniacs. There was no excessive daytime sleepiness or sleep apnea.
After an average follow-up period of 8 years, 275 developed coronary heart disease or had a stroke.
People who get “optimal” sleep have a 74% lower risk of heart disease and stroke than those with the lowest sleep scores, according to a new study presented at the European Society of Cardiology in Barcelona. I understand.
Dr Nambiema adds:
“We also found that the majority of people have sleep problems.
“Given that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, there needs to be more awareness of the importance of good sleep in maintaining a healthy heart.”
