Sleeping less than 5hrs leads to artery disease, mental challenge — Study
PEOPLE who sleep less than five hours a night stands grave risk of developing peripheral artery disease (PAD), which could lead to metal illness at its advanced stage.
A study published today in European Heart Journal of European Society of Cardiology (ESC)’s website said more than 200 million people globally have developed PAD, due to insufficient daily sleep with nearly 74 per cent verging on its advance stage.
Explain PAD as “a condition where arteries in the legs are clogged, restricting blood flow and increasing the risk of stroke and heart attack,” the study whose authors were led by Dr. Shuai Yuan of Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden, said “sleeping for seven to eight hours a night was a good habit for lowering the risk of PAD.”
“Insufficient night-time sleep and daytime napping have previously been associated with a raised risk of coronary artery disease which, like PAD, is caused by clogged arteries. In addition, sleeping problems are among the top-ranked complaints in PAD patients.
“There are limited data on the impact of sleep habits on PAD and vice versa, and our study aimed to fill that gap,” Yuan said.
