Those suffering from insomnia has a 27% higher risk of heart attack

A study published by the American Heart Association shows that recurrent episodes of insomnia doubles the risk of heart attacks in healthy people.

The investigation, which ran for 11 years and involved adult Norwegians, confirmed that people with trouble sleeping most nights had a 45% greater risk of suffering heart attacks.

The volunteers reported difficulties in sleep a full night showed an increased risk of 30% and that woke up with a feeling of tiredness more than once a week had a 27% higher risk of heart attack.

"Sleep problems are common and easily treatable.'s Important that people are aware of this connection between insomnia and heart problems and talk to your doctor when the first symptoms occur," said study leader Lars Erik Laugsand, University Norwegian Science and Technology.

For the research, scientists were based on responses to a questionnaire by 52,610 participants and analysis of hospital files of 2.368 people who have had heart attacks during the 11 years of monitoring.

Although the results are not very clear reasons linking insomnia to heart problems. Some researchers suggest that sleep problems may be related to factors that increase heart risk as blood pressure and inflammation.
