People who sleep less than 5 hours at night should be careful, ‘silent killer’ disease can become a big threat in future
lack of sleep: Many studies have claimed that not getting enough sleep has many negative effects on the body. You must have heard about it many times. However, due to today’s busy and run-of-the-mill lifestyle, many people do not get enough sleep for 8-9 hours. A study has claimed that getting less than 5 hours of sleep at night increases the risk of blood clots in the body by three quarters. Swedish researchers have found that not getting enough sleep increases the risk of developing peripheral artery disease, in which the blood supply to the legs and arms is reduced or cut off.
6,50,000 people were included in this study. An attempt was made to find the relation between the duration of sleep and this disease in all the people. Research has found that people who do not get the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep may be at risk of peripheral artery disease. According to The Sun report, Dr. Shuai Yuan of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm said that getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night can reduce the risk of peripheral artery disease.
One in five people over the age of 60 in the UK suffer from the condition, which can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. This problem is more common in smokers and people suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Symptoms like hair loss, pain while walking, numbness, weak nails and blisters can be seen in this disease. Previous research suggests that not getting enough sleep may also increase the risk of heart disease, which causes clogged arteries.
