Though insomnia is an exceptionally frequent problem many people have with their sleep patterns, it is rarely diagnosed. And due to that, mostly goes without any effective treatment leaving many people dealing with fatigue when they can’t get enough rest on a regular basis. And it’s more than simply being over tired. Chronic lack of sleep increases your risk for a number of very real and serious medical conditions; including higher blood pressure, mental problems such as depression, and even diabetes.
For this reason, medical professionals are interested in looking for ways to offer effective relief to insomnia patients. Some existing medications are prescribed off-label to help provide that help, but the hope is more structured research will be preformed, and used to create targeted medications and treatments that dial down on the specific cause of insomnia. New data shows that insomnia puts a patient at five times the normal risk for mental disorders, and doubles their risk for cardiac and blood sugar issues.
One in four adults suffer from sleep issues, and as many as one in ten have insomnia. The condition is defined as an inability to either regularly fall asleep, or stay sleeping once unconscious. When this occurs, REM cycles are disrupted, and what rest an insomnia patient manages will be far less effective than what a normal sleep pattern produces.
Helping ease your insomnia starts with more research into it. Doctors want to know more. #HealthStatus
