Excellent sleep helps control blood pressure
Whether in life or in film and television dramas, such conversations often occur: a person wakes up and feels his head and says: “Today’s blood pressure is a bit high.
“The listener will ask in most cases: “Is it not sleeping well last night?
“It can be seen that the relationship between sleep and blood pressure has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people.
Numerous studies have confirmed this, and some hypertension is indeed closely related to sleep.
A five-year follow-up survey involving 10,000 adults found that women who were able to sleep for more than 7 hours a night, who were not able to sleep for 6 hours, had a 42% higher risk of hypertension and never sleeped for 5 hours.People who have high blood pressure must be 31% more likely.
Harvard University’s follow-up study of older men found that older men with the shortest sleep time had a 60% higher risk of developing hypertension than those with deep sleep.
Under normal circumstances, people’s blood pressure at night is lower than the daytime level, but lack of sleep or poor sleep quality, causing elevated blood pressure at night, which is mainly caused by abnormally increased sympathetic excitability, which in turn leads to morning blood pressure.The peak appears early, which in turn affects blood pressure throughout the day.
Abnormal fluctuations in blood pressure will in turn affect the quality of sleep and form a vicious circle.
It can be seen that sleep is expected to be a good medicine for stabilizing blood pressure.
It is worth noting that there is also a sleep-related disease – sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) that can significantly affect sleep quality, and is also one of the risk factors for hypertension, which is typically snoring.
The data shows that 50%?
92% of SAHS patients have high blood pressure, and 30%?
50% of hypertensive patients are accompanied by SAHS.
Most SAHS patients are overweight and some are short and thick.
When they sleep, they are screaming and irregular, often waking up. They will feel headaches after getting up in the morning, dry mouth, sleepy during the day, watching TV or reading newspapers are easy to fall asleep, usually feel tired and weak all day.
SAHS increases the risk of hypertension, mainly because it increases heart rate, increases myocardial contractility, and increases cardiac load.
People with SAHS suffer from high blood pressure, and their blood pressure is obviously increased during sleep at night and in the morning. Blood pressure rises during the day and before going to bed. Therefore, some patients are not easy to detect.
SAHS hypertension is often “stubborn” and requires experienced doctors to carefully adjust the program.
Of course, if it is only a simple mild snoring, the relationship is not big, but if the body is serious, people who often have apnea during sleep should be monitored by polysomnography to confirm the diagnosis.
Once diagnosed, you should actively lose weight, quit smoking and alcohol, avoid being too tired, and suggest that the sleeping position should be changed from supine position to lateral position.
Through treatment and lifestyle adjustments, SAHS is relieved, and it is also very helpful in controlling blood pressure. To some extent, it can reduce the use of antihypertensive drugs, and may even stop the drug.
In view of the relationship between sleep and high blood pressure cuts, if you want to have stable blood pressure, you must ensure extended sleep.
In life, everyone may wish to exercise a good night’s sleep by exercising regularly, improving the sleeping environment, and stabilizing the mood.
