Study: Insomnia increases the risk of stroke 4 times

A new US study revealed that people under the age of 50 who suffer from insomnia are four times more likely to have a stroke.

The study said its findings suggest that improving sleep quality through therapies can help reduce this risk.

For his part, study author Andemi Sawadogo, of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond and a member of the American Academy of Neurology, explained that there are many treatments that can help people improve the quality of their sleep.

He added that identifying sleep problems that lead to an increased risk of stroke may help lead to early treatments, or behavioral therapies that reduce the risk of stroke later in life.

It is noteworthy that the study included more than 31,000 participants, with an average age of 61 years, who had no history of stroke at the start of the study and were followed for an average of 9 years.

Participants were asked how often they had difficulty falling asleep, whether they woke up during the night regularly, whether they had difficulty waking up too early, their inability to fall back asleep, and how often they felt rested in the morning.

The researchers say they adjusted for factors that can influence stroke risk, such as alcohol use, smoking and level of physical activity.
