Sleeping just after dinner increases the chances of stroke

More than 1,000 patients participated in the study: 500 healthy subjects, 250 who had already undergone stroke and 250 who had coronary syndrome, a common type of heart disease that increases the chances of formation of blood clots in the arteries, strokes and heart attacks. Everyone completed a questionnaire about their sleeping and eating habits. Researchers have taken into account other factors that may increase the chances of stroke, such as age, sex, physical activity, weight, smoking, diabetes, family history, and cholesterol levels. compared to people who go to bed soon after dinner, individuals who wait between 60 and 70 minutes are 66% less likely to have a stroke, and those who wait from 70 minutes to 120 minutes are 76% more protected. Even though the cause has not been found, doctors say sleeping right after eating can increase the chances of nighttime reflux, a problem that causes sleep apnea.
