Daytime naps tied to elevated hypertension risk

AANP SmartBrief | May 19, 2016

A meta-analysis of nine studies with more than 112,000 participants found that adults who regularly napped during the day had a 13% increased risk of developing hypertension and studies that specifically assessed daytime napping showed a 19% increased risk of hypertension. However, the risk was reduced 21% in night-shift workers who took nighttime naps. The findings were presented at the American Society of Hypertension annual meeting.
