Insomnia found to increase the risk of stroke

According to Jo White of there is a recent study on journal Stroke Ming-Ping Wu and colleagues conducted a four-year prospective study examining whether insomnia acts as a risk factor for developing stroke, and whether persistent insomnia increases this risk. This is true if you conducted a research about the topic and I found out that insomnia can really be associated with stroke.

We know that poor sleep has been linked to cardiovascular diseases. But there have been few studies that have investigated the relationship between insomnia and cardiovascular disease outcomes such as the risk for stroke. One of the areas that is yet to be fully examined is whether insomnia precedes and acts as a risk factor for the future onset of stroke.

In a recent study, published online in the journal Stroke, Ming-Ping Wu and colleagues conducted a four-year prospective study examining whether insomnia acts as a risk factor for developing stroke, and whether persistent insomnia increases this risk. Approximately 85,000 adults were assessed as part of the Taiwan Longitudinal Health Insurance Database.

From this group, over twenty thousand met the criteria for developing insomnia since the start of the study. Persistent insomnia was defined as consistent insomnia diagnosis at each 180-day period across the four-year interval; relapse of insomnia was defined as a return of insomnia after being diagnosed free of the condition for more than180 days; and finally, insomnia remission was defined as transitioning to a non-insomnia diagnosis and remaining this way for remainder of the evaluation period. Hospitalisation for stroke (and type of stroke) was recorded as the main dependent variable, and according to diagnostic codes from the International Classification of Diseases.

Risk of stroke was found to be significantly higher in patients with insomnia – with those in the insomnia group nearly 85% more likely to have been hospitalised for stroke in the four-year follow-up period. This increased risk was particularly pronounced for transient ischemic attack or ‘mini-stroke’. After adjustment for potential confounding variables (such as physical and mental health conditions, as well as age, sex and socioeconomic status), those with insomnia still had a 54% increased risk of stroke relative to those without insomnia. Interestingly, those with a persistent pattern of insomnia also had a significantly higher cumulative incident rate of stroke, relative to those who initially experienced insomnia but subsequently went into remission. Thus the severity and patterning of insomnia may play a role in stroke risk.

The research team conclude:

“Our study provides population-based evidence that people with insomnia have higher incidences and risks of hospitalization for stroke as compared with noninsomniacs. The results of this study suggest that intervention to improve insomnia is needed and should be examined whether it could be a strategy to improve cardiovascular health.”

According to research and study this may lead not only stroke but different kinds of sleep problems. If you are aware of the sleep disorders you may take this thing seriously. To avoid such problems we provided more readings and information for preventing insomnia and also provide some ideas on how to treat insomnia. Learn insomnia's symptoms, treatment and possible prevention's.

Must-not-see TV: Violent content leads to sleep problems for kids

Any parent with a child old enough to speak has no doubt endured many sleepless nights as the result of bad dreams. Sometimes there’s a monster hiding in the closet. Other times there are bugs crawling underneath the bed, or a witch lurking in the hallway.

Countless observational studies have reported an association between media and sleep problems in children. But a new study published Monday in the American Academy of Pediatrics now purports a causal relationship between violent or inappropriate media and poor sleep.

The study’s authors analyzed more than 500 children aged 3 to 5, their media viewing habits and their quality of sleep. The results show that replacing violent content with age-appropriate and educational alternatives can indeed lead to improved down time.

“The results of this study are no surprise to me,” says clinical psychologist Wendy Walsh. “Young children are very concrete, literal thinkers. They just don’t get the concept of pretend monsters or pretend violence. Violent media can cause anxiety in small children that can clearly disrupt sleep.”

It should be noted that the study’s results are drawn from a much larger data pool, part of an even broader study aimed at decreasing aggressive behavior and increasing “pro-social” behavior (voluntary behavior intended to benefit another). The methods of that study include persuading parents to substitute more appropriate media content for their kids, since considerable research has demonstrated that violent media exposure can lead to aggression, as well as other behavioral and emotional problems in young children.

Participating parents were asked to lead an intervention of their kids’ TV time by replacing inappropriate content with shows such as “Curious George,” “Sesame Street,” and “Dora the Explorer.”

Moms and dads were also encouraged to watch TV alongside their children and to discuss the programs they watched with their kids. Not only does this practice increase parental awareness of the content their child is exposed to, but it also seeks to enhance the positive effects of educational and pro-social media (although another study concluded such co-viewing and subsequent discussions might not mitigate the negative effects of violent or scary media).

Quality of sleep was assessed by utilizing a portion of the Child Sleep Habits Questionnaire, which in part quantifies the frequency of sleep-onset latency, repeated night wakings, nightmares, difficulty waking in the morning and daytime tiredness. The most common sleep problem, according to the authors, was difficulty with sleep-onset latency, with 26% of children taking  more than 20 minutes to fall asleep a majority of nights per week.

Following baseline measurements, children in the intervention group experienced statistically significant reductions in their sleep disruptions, as compared with those subjects in the control group. Six months after the interventions ended, however, the improvements decreased. The study’s authors therefore encourage parents to continue making healthy media choices for their children as they grow older and media options continue to evolve.

“Whether that video content is violent or not,” Walsh adds, “watching any TV... before bed can affect the ability to sleep well. TV is just too stimulating before bed, even for adults.”
