Lack of Sleep = Health Problems
Is it true ???Lack of Sleep = Health Problems
Top 5 Problems From Lack of Sleep

Anxiety and Depression: Insomnia can contribute to anxiety by raising levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. Sleep problems can also make other symptoms of depression worse and are much more common than oversleeping in people with depression.

Obesity: About two-thirds of the children diagnosed with sleep apnea in our clinic are overweight or obese. Obese children tend to have more fat tissue around their neck, which puts more pressure on the airway and further block air from getting through to the lungs.

Diabetes: Research from the American Diabetes Association showed that inadequate sleep may prompt development of insulin resistance, a well-known risk factor for diabetes.

Immunity Problems: Several nights of poor rest can hamper the production of interleukin-1, an important immune booster. A good night's sleep helps your child's body fight off illness and stay healthy.

ADHD: Children who often snore or have sleep problems are almost twice as likely to suffer from ADHD as those who sleep well. Other research has shown that children who don't get enough sleep tend to have more problems concentrating during the day.
