This presentation will examine the evidence about how narcolepsy is associated with multiple cardiovascular risk factors and comorbidities, including cardiovascular disease. An important impact is the lack of nocturnal blood pressure dipping, which has been associated with mortality in the general population. Furthermore, disrupted nighttime sleep and excessive daytime sleepiness, which are characteristic of narcolepsy, may increase cardiovascular risk and present with other comorbidities (eg, obesity, diabetes, depression, other sleep disorders) that may contribute to increased cardiovascular risk. Management of multimorbidity in patients with narcolepsy should include regular assessment of cardiovascular health with the management of cardiovascular risk factors, such as lifestyle changes.
