The Facts About Sleep

According to The National Sleep Foundation, not getting enough sleep every night can impair your ability to process carbohydrates, manage stress and maintain a proper balance of hormones.

People who have problems sleeping are more likely to have heart attacks, stokes, and high blood pressure that is difficult to treat.

A study presented at the 2004 North American Association for the Study of Obesity has found a correlation between the amount of sleep a person gets each night and their chance of becoming obese.

Snoring is often associated with a condition known as sleep apnea, which may indicate an increased risk of hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia and sudden death during sleep.

Children with sleep problems often manifest learning or behavior difficulties rather than simple fatigue. Snoring plus any learning or behavioral problem should receive a sleep evaluation.

Children with Down Syndrome, craniofacial abnormalities, muscle weakness, blindness, autism spectrum, cerebral palsy, or obesity often have sleep problems.

While conditions unique to women, such as menstrual cycle, menopause and new-mom fatigue can affect how well a woman sleeps, quite often it is a physical or psychological problem that can be relieved with changes in sleep routines or medications.

Excessive sleepiness can result in automobile accidents, lack of concentration, industrial and environmental disasters, depression and significantly reduced energy levels.

People who have normal sleep are alert for virtually the entire daytime period. They are vigilant. They have enough stamina to complete tasks. They can concentrate and stay on the task for however long it takes to complete it. Their mood is stable. The total amount of sleep required to achieve this optimal daytime function varies from person to person.
