Daytime Fatigue May Indicate Heart Disease

If you find it hard to stay awake during the day, you may want to schedule an appointment to see your doctor. A French study of elderly people has found that otherwise healthy older people who were sleepy during the day had a 49 percent better chance of dying from cardiovascular problems, including heart failure and myocardial infarction.

Researchers have not yet determined whether feeling tired during the day is a symptom of heart disease or whether having heart disease makes people feel sleepy. Feeling tired during the day can be caused by a number of health problems, and it’s worth getting checked out by a doctor anyway.
