Nearly half of heart disease patients have insomnia, reveals study

Almost half of patients with heart disease also suffer from insomnia, a new study has found.

The link between insomnia and the risk of recurrent major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) was found to be “significant”, even when the analysis was adjusted to account for the patients’ other physical and mental health conditions.

Study authors said 16 percent of these cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks or strokes, might have been avoided if none of the participants had insomnia.
