A new study has come out and women with heart problems may better be careful. This was after a study conducted by researcher Aric Prather, Ph. D found that women with poor sleep plays a bigger role on inflammation risks for women from bad sleep.
Apparently an association between having bad sleep quality and biomarkers was found but curiously only affecting women. On the case of the male counterparts, the testerone levels were said to be a possible shield against the said inflammation risks, although more research seems to be needed to further explain the said issue.
This isn’t the first time bad sleep has been linked with inflammation. A study presented in 2010 at the annual meeting of the American Heart Association showed that sleep deprivation seems to be associated with the body producing more inflammatory hormones, which could then be a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.
