New York Times (Reuters Health) – The link between grief and sleep disorder increased the risk of cardiovascular disease and death, according to a new US study conducted at the University of Rice in collaboration with the Northwestern University.

Researchers have found that the relationship between sleep disorder and infection is two to three times higher for couples and spouses who have lost their partner.

Inflammation was measured at the level of inflammatory cytokines, which were shaped as short-term disease fighters but linked to a long-term risk of health problems, including cardiovascular disease.

"Research suggests that people with disabilities are most vulnerable to the negative health effects of sleep disorders," said Dr. Diana Shirinos, MD, a preventative medicine professor at the Preventive Medicine School at Northwestern University in Vienna. In order to adapt to the life of their new social status, sleep disturbances doubled these pressures and as a result, the immune system is more active.

Previous studies have shown that in the first six months after losing the widow's wife 41% are more likely to die and 53% of the increased risk is caused by cardiovascular disease. Sleep disorders have witnessed an increase in severity and sadness.

The result is another finding in the research that human behavior and behavior affect inflammation, and adds more and more work to the impact of disaster on health, said Chris Vagunds, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Rice University and Chief Researcher of HEART Project.

Researchers hope the findings will help design better health interventions for those who lose a life partner.
