  • Cambridge-Newton-Framingham, MA (1888PressRelease) December 19, 2019 - A recent study published in Neurology indicates worrying symptoms for those suffering with mild or acute Insomnia.

    The researchers used data from China Kadoorie Biobank which tracks and investigates the outbreak of chronic diseases among Chinese Nationals aged between 30 to 79. It is noteworthy here that participants didn't have any medical history of cardiovascular diseases.

    The Participants sample size and parameters

    All the participants were measured in three parameters: the problems falling or staying asleep, waking up too early and, distraction in focus during the day due to disrupted sleep. Participants were observed to have been having the problem at least 3 days a week.

    The study reports 11% (of the participants) had trouble falling or staying asleep, followed by 10% of participants with problems of waking up early. However, only 2% of the participants reported having focusing issues during the day which verifies the study conducted by Washington State University and published in Nature and Science of sleep ( 12/19121110024...).

    The Correlation between Insomnia and Cardiovascular diseases

    The researchers conducted a decade long study following all the participants. In this duration 130,032 incidences of heart attack, stroke, and comparable diseases were reported.

    The study also included other factors such as smoking and alcohol consumption. The study found those with all the three symptoms were at 18% more risk to develop cardiovascular diseases.

    Those who reported trouble focusing during the day were 13% more likely to develop heart attack, stroke, and comparable diseases than people who did not have problems focusing.

    Researchers identified that the people who found it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep had a 9% higher chance of developing these diseases, while those who woke up too early were 7% more likely to experience a stroke, heart attack, or similar.

    The expert take:

    Despite these results, the researchers point out that they have not established a cause and effect between insomnia and cardiovascular illnesses. The findings simply highlight an association between the two.

    Notably, this link "was even stronger in younger adults and people who did not have high blood pressure at the start of the study," says study author Dr. Liming Li of Beijing's Peking University in China.
