Restless Legs Syndrome & CHD Among Women


American researchers suggest that women who have had physician-diagnosed restless legs syndrome (RLS) for at least 3 years have higher risks of coronary heart disease (CHD). When compared with women without RLS, those with RLS for more than 3 years had a hazard ratio of 1.72 for developing CHD.
