Massachusetts: A team of researchers has revealed a significant link between insomnia and high blood pressure, particularly among women.

A study published in the journal ‘Hypertension’ by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital Network Medicine in the US highlights the important role of quality sleep in maintaining good health.

Brigham and Harvard Medical School lead researcher Dr. Shahab Hagaye has identified an increased risk of high blood pressure in people who experience symptoms of insomnia, especially women.

The study followed 66,122 participants between the ages of 25 and 42. According to the results, women with sleep problems had weight gain, less physical activity and inadequate diet.

The research also found that women who sleep less than seven to eight hours a night or who have trouble sleeping have a significantly higher risk of developing high blood pressure.
