Lack of Sleep Making Hypertension

Those who slept only 6 hours, 42 percent likely to have hypertension, while the bed to no more than 5 hours the risk 31 percent higher. The research is reported in the journal Hypertension.

This research is the new women only, not on men. According to the head of the research, Dr. Francesco P. Cappuccio from Warwick Medical School, Coventry, these findings indicate the possibility of a special relationship of sex, the decline in sleep time, and blood pressure. However, the reason for the findings of this decision is not yet known.

A number of research associate the quality of sleep is bad for the increased risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. Much of the research is focused on people with sleep apnea respiratory disturbances (stopping the breath during sleep). However, some evidence shows, loss of sleep time, without the interference of clear, is also detrimental health.

For research, Cappuccio and his team use the data from the long-term health study of 10,300 civilian employees aged white UK 35-55 years. The researchers focused on the respondents who are free from high blood pressure in the research phase years 1997-1999 and 2003-2005 on the re-assessed.

During phase two, the 76 and 68 percent, in a row, the group's origin, included in the evaluation. In the assessment back, 20 percent of respondents diagnosed with high blood pressure and the risk is greater among women with short sleep time.

Risk factors for heart disease, such as smoking, excess body weight, or lifestyle sedentari, contributing to the partial relationship. However, the relationship between sleep and free blood pressure still exists.

Experts speculate that the loss of sleep can contribute to high blood pressure. This time because of lack of sleep make nervous system are in a situation hiperaktif, which then affect the system throughout the body, including heart and blood vessel.

According to the team Cappuccio, need more research to mengonfirmasi that sleep duration of the level of blood pressure, and why this effect can be different in women and men.
