Lack of Sleep May Increase Stroke Risk

Fuse / Thinkstock

Adults who don’t sleep enough are more likely to suffer a stroke, according to a new study presented at the SLEEP 2012 conference [WashingtonPost.com].

The study followed 5,666 people over a three-year period and examined them for symptoms of depression and stroke, risk factors for stroke, and demographics. Researchers found that middle- and older-aged adults who got less than six hours of sleep per night on a regular basis were more likely to suffer a stroke. Weight wasn’t a factor.
