The Importance of Being Asleep
Sleep is essential for a person’s health and wellbeing. A survey between 1999-2004 demonstrated that at least 40 million Americans suffer from over 70 different sleep disorders and 60 percent of adults report having sleep problems a few nights a week or more. Lack of sleep can also lead to health problems such as diabetes.
Diabetes and sleep problems often go hand in hand. Diabetes can cause sleep loss, and there’s evidence that not sleeping well can increase your risk of developing diabetes.
Not getting enough sleep can have profound consequences on a daily and potentially long-term basis for your health and mental well-being. Among the issues are:
Heart Disease and Hypertension
Poor sleep is associated with lower life expectancy. Data from three large cross-sectional epidemiological studies reveal that sleeping five hours or less per night increased mortality risk from all causes by roughly 15 percent.
