The study was apparently conducted over a period of four years where the researchers reviewed the randomly-selected health records of more than 21,000 people with insomnia and 64,000 non-insomniacs.

It was also found that stroke risk was eight times higher among people in the age group of 18 to 34 years if they were suffering from sleep disorders.

The study was led by Ya-Wen Hsu, an assistant professor at Chia Nan University of Pharmacy and Science in Taiwan. Ya-Wen Hsu and his fellow researchers found evidence that insomniacs have higher stroke risk.

The study was published in the American Heart Association journal Stroke.
