Everyone needs adequate sleep, because if less will impact health. The study found people who sleep less may develop high blood pressure.
People who lack sleep are frequently made a mistake and was upset in the morning. It turned out that the consequences are not just limited to that. Over time, people who often lack of sleep can contribute to high blood pressure.
When a person will experience a phase of sleep brain waves known as slow-wave sleep. Phase of sleep is considered restorative and has proven important for memory and mental performance of a person.
The study, involving 784 participants found people who spend time slow-wave sleep less than 4 percent have 83 percent higher chance of developing high blood pressure (hypertension).
“These results indicate an important aspect of quality of sleep with the risk of high blood pressure, and the elderly are less likely to get a phase of slow-wave sleep with age,” said Eve Van Cauter, director of the Sleep, Metabolism and Health Center at the University of Chicago, as quoted from Healthland.Time.
Earlier it was known that sleep problems associated with high blood pressure. Sleep apnea and chronic disorders make someone woke up and had to struggle for breath several times during the night, this condition is strongly associated with increased blood pressure.
Dr. Susan Redline is involved in the study and associate professor at Harvard Medical School tells us there are several things you can do to help people sleep longer and deeper like going and getting out of bed at the same time, avoiding alcohol and tobacco before bed and wash up (sleep hygiene).
“But the most important thing to avoid the lack of sleep is the absence of disturbances during sleep such as sleep apnea, snoring or periodic leg movements,” said Dr. Redline.
While high blood pressure is a condition that can cause various complications if not handled properly, especially cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease and stroke.
