Poor sleep quality may lead to resistant hypertension in BP patients
A new study has claimed that patients suffering from high blood pressure, insomnia may face severe consequences.
The research was done by observing the sleeping patterns of 234 people suffering from high blood pressure. Among the total participants, most slept six or fewer hours and reported to have poor sleep quality and were twice as likely to have resistant hypertension as those having normal sleep.
Blood pressure is considered resistant if you are using three or more blood pressure medications but still retain a blood pressure reading higher than 140/90 mmHg.
Moreover, the study also showed that women were more likely to have lower sleep quality than men.
The researchers came out with the conclusion that, people with high blood pressure were more likely to face sleeping problems, and poor sleep quality and were related with resistant hypertension in high blood pressure patients.
The findings of the study were presented at the American Heart Association's High Blood Pressure Research 2012 Scientific Sessions.
