Shorter Sleep in Men Raises Risk of Heart Disease

Men who don’t sleep enough may be increasing their risk for cardiovascular disease, new research suggests.

The notion is based on the finding that shorter duration of sleep was associated with a thickening of the men’s neck’s carotid artery wall. Such “intima-media thickness” (IMT) is considered to be a significant marker for heart disease.

What’s more, the link between sleep and IMT seems to be gender-based, applying solely to men.

Sleep monitoring revealed that men slept less on a daily basis than women: 5.7 hours vs. 6.3 hours, respectively.
