People with sleep problems have a higher risk of developing dementia.
Studies have shown that people with sleep problems have a higher risk of developing dementia.
According to a study published in the Journal of Sleep Research, older people who have trouble sleeping, and wake up frequently at night, have a higher risk of developing dementia or dying prematurely for any reason.
According to sleep specialist Rebecca Robbins, director of Harvard Medical School of Medicine, the results of the study show that every night’s sleep plays a key role in reducing the risk of death from all causes.
Studies have shown that people who have trouble sleeping late at night have a 44 percent increased risk of early death for any reason. Similarly, people who struggle to wake up and sleep at night often have a 56 percent increased risk of death.
Also, people who have difficulty sleeping regularly have a 49 percent increased risk of dementia and those who wake up at night and struggle to sleep have a 39 percent increased risk of dementia.
According to the World Sleep Society, lack of sleep is endangering the health of 45% of the world’s population. If you have trouble sleeping, the risk of various diseases including diabetes, stroke, and heart disease is high.
Depending on the age, you need seven to 10 hours of sleep each night.
