Insomnia increases your risk of heart attack

We already know that insomnia may increase your risk of heart disease. Now a new study out of Norway suggests that insomnia sufferers are at a higher risk of heart attack compared to those who sleep well.

The study looked at 52,610 men and women over an eleven year period. Those who reported having trouble falling asleep almost every night in the previous month were 45% more likely to have a heart attack compared to those who said they rarely or never had trouble sleeping.

Those who reported having trouble staying asleep almost every night in the previous month were 30% more likely to have a heart attack compared to those who slept throughout the night.

Those who reported poor sleep and waking feeling unrefreshed more than once per week were 27% more likely to have a heart attack compared to those who slept well and woke feeling refreshed.

The researchers also found that for every insomnia symptom the research participants had, their risk of heart attack increased by 25%.

Yet more evidence that demands we take insomnia more seriously and encourage those suffering from sleep deprivation to seek help (and receive appropriate treatment).
