Sleep Crisis – Century’s Epidemic Problem

 

Insufficient Sleep is being an Epidemic Public Health problem in our century. More than 35% of American adults have less than 7 hours of daily sleep. It is commonly accepted that Insomnia is not a symptom of other health problems. The medical community accepts it as a distinct disorder now.

So, what are the effects of insufficient sleep on our bodies;

  • There is NO human function that isn’t affected by sleep loss.
  • Sleep loss linked to physical, emotional and intellectual impairments.
  • The link between insomnia and diabetes is strong. The cellular level insulin resistance is shown on insomniacs.
  • Sleep loss increases inflammation in the tissues
  • Inadequate sleep means increased pain sensitivity
  • Depression and suicide rate increases with less sleep
  • Memory failures and impaired judgement are common symptoms for insomnia patients.
  • Sleep loss and obesity link is proven by many researches. The hunger hormone –ghrelin- which stimulates the appetite, increases without sleep. It plays important role on body weight by promoting fat storage.
  • Children’s sleep problems are more serious consequences. From developmental delay to Hyperactivity, Attention Deficit Disorders are part of the spectrum seen in kids with inadequate sleep.
  • Kids who averaged less than seven hours of sleep have more body fat, higher blood pressure and worse cholesterol levels.
  • Just 2.2% of adolescents meet or exceed the recommended amount of sleep for their age group.
  • Sleep deprived students show poor academic performance and their ability to solve problems is impaired.
