Hsu said , though insomnia is the most common sleep complaint , people with insomnia should be treated early to prevent other conditions . To arrive at this conclusion , the study researchers studied approximately 21 438 people with insomnia and 64 314 healthy people for four years .

The researchers do not understand how or why insomnia may be associated with an increased risk of stroke . But they speculate sleep disorders can cause inflammation , increase blood pressure , and metabolic deregulation that affect cardiovascular health .
