#1129: MM- Circulation Problems and Sleep
Release Date: 06/07/2019
Are you getting enough sleep? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. In case you needed another reason to get more sleep, a new study has linked circulation problems with lack of sleep. In fact, only getting 6 hours of sleep a night, instead of the recommended 7 to 8, can increase your chances of developing plaque in your arteries by 27%. University of Colorado Boulder has located the biological mechanism that occurs during sleep that prevents plaque buildup. The participants of the study that slept less than 7 hours a night had fewer microRNAs than those that slept 7 to 8 hours. These types of RNAs are responsible for suppressing the expression of proinflammatory proteins. Make sure that you are getting the recommended 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night, your heart health depends on it.
