A large Norwegian study found that people with insomnia were more likely to have a heart attack.

The increased risk ranged from 27 to 45 percent. Those with more difficulty sleeping had the highest risk, compared to solid sleepers.

If you are having trouble sleeping researchers suggest talking with a cardiologist.
