Restless Legs Syndrome Increases Risk of Heart-Related Death
A new research, published in the journal Neurology, finds that the restless legs syndrome (RLS), the sleep and sensorimotor disorder, may increase the risk of heart-related death, especially in senior women.
For the study, a team of scientists examined data on 57,417 women from the Nurses’ Health Study. The women were clinically followed for a period of 10 years. Having analyzed the received data, the researchers concluded that over the 10-years period women with restless legs syndrome were 43% more likely to die from a heart disease.
The lead author of the research Xiang Gao, an associate professor of nutritional sciences at Pennsylvania State University in State College, says: “People with RLS are at elevated risk of CVD and other chronic conditions, but previous studies of all-cause mortality in people with RLS have reported inconsistent results. Our research clarifies how restless leg[s] syndrome affects cardiovascular disease-related mortality in older women, specifically. This study suggests that RLS could be a novel risk factor for CVD-related death.”
