Frequent Napping Linked to High Blood Pressure, Stroke

 


July 25, 2022 -- People who nap frequently have a 12% higher chance of having high blood pressure and a 24% higher chance of having a stroke than people who never or rarely nap, according to a study published in Hypertension, a journal of the American Heart Association.

Researchers in China studied information from UK Biobank, a biomedical database containing genetic, lifestyle, and health information from half a million people between the ages of 40 and 69 who lived in the United Kingdom, the AHA said in a news release.

Taking naps is not harmful in itself but may indicate people aren’t getting enough sleep at night, a sleep expert who wasn’t involved in the study says in the news release.
