A lack of deep sleep may contribute to high blood pressure.  A study done on older men found that those who reported having less deep sleep were 80% more likely to develop high blood pressure.  Several factors may contribute to lowering the amount of deep sleep a person has. These may include having sleep apnea, taking medications that interfere with sleep or having other health issues that inhibit good rest (such as frequent awakening and having to get up often at night).
