DHAKA: Habitually sleeping less than six hours a night significantly increases the risk of stroke symptoms among middle-aged to older adults, according to a research presented at the Sleep 2012 conference.
The study, which followed about 5,600 people for about three years, concluded that poor sleep can undermine all the other things we do, China`s Xinhua news agency said.
Researchers from the University of Alabama at Birmingham recorded the first stroke symptoms, along with demographic information, stroke risk factors, depression symptoms and various health behaviours, reports The Straits Times.
