Nowadays, there are some major issues when it comes to our health. We don’t eat enough healthy food, we don’t exercise as we should do and of course, we do not sleep enough. These habits can have shocking effects on our body. A recent study revealed that heart attacks can be caused by sleeping disease.
The author of the study, Mr. Dirk Hermann from University Hospital Essen, Germany, said that although sleep disorders were common after a stroke, very few patients were tested for them. The results show us that we should pay more attention as people with sleep disorders are more likely to have another heart attack than those who can sleep without any problem. The researchers used as many studies as possible to link sleep disturbances with stroke.
Keep in mind that a sleeping disease can mean too little sleep, but also too much of it. A heart attack can be caused by a sleeping disease. It seems that sleep disturbances were more prevalent in patients who suffered a heart attack than in the general population. A sleep disorder is a medical problem of the sleep pattern of a person. Some of those diseases are so serious they are affecting normal physical and mental functioning. The most popular term for this issue is insomnia.
There are two types of sleeping disorders: sleep breathing problems and sleep-wake problems. Both of them can be a threat to our health.If you have trouble sleeping or you wake up often, you should see a doctor. There are many treatments regarding this matter: behavioral treatment, rehabilitation, medical or other somatic treatment. It is very important to see a doctor who will tell you which treatment is the best for you, according to your diagnosis and medical history.
The medical importance of sleep was recognized after doctors figured out the importance of sleep for our health and how many sleeping disorders can affect us. Many clinics and hospitals have studied how we can improve our health and what should we do if we have a sleeping disease.
Many people with sleeping disorders want to try drugs as treatment. Due to the lack of evidence and possible side effects, scientists are cautious to recommend this kind of treatment. Knowing that heart attack can be caused by a sleeping disease, we should pay more attention to our medication.
