The researchers have warned a potential increase in the risk of heart disease or a stroke with too less or more sleep.

More research is required to find out the exact cause, but it is confirmed that sleep impacts the biological processes like blood pressure, glucose metabolism, and inflammations which points to cardiovascular disease.

A senior cardiac nurse, Emily McGrath, emphasized that getting a good night's sleep is essential for good health and adviced that prolonged sleep deprivation or excessive sleeping should be avoided.

It is important to consult the general physician if a person struggles with sleep disorder as it has a significant negative outcome on the quality of life.
