What are the Health Risks of Insomnia?
Insomnia can present itself in any person at just about any age. It can result in having problems falling asleep or problems remaining asleep throughout the night. While most people experience some forms of insomnia for short-term periods, ongoing chronic insomnia can lead to long-term health risks if it is not treated using natural supplements or other solutions recommended by your healthcare provider.
Some of the more serious health risks associated with long-term, chronic insomnia include:
- Heart Disease
- High Blood Pressure
- Heart Attack
- Irregular Heart/Pulse Rates
- Heart Failure
Besides long-term health risks, short-term, ongoing insomnia also has its own risks, including:
- Problems Concentrating
- Increased Risks for Accidents
- Lowered Sex Drive
- Weight Gain
- Impaired Judgement
Your risks for insomnia can be greater based upon underlying factors, as follows:
- Risks for insomnia increase as we get older, especially in seniors.
- You frequently change your work hours or attempt to go to sleep immediately after your work day ends.
- You are not getting the proper nutrition and vitamins your body requires.
- You use electronic devices up until the time you go to bed.
- You are experiencing hormonal changes, like menopause or monthly menstrual cycles.
- You often travel through multiple time zones for work.
- You have been diagnosed with some form of mental health disorder.
- You constantly feel stressed.
