Researchers conducted a study and found about half of patients with sleep apnea also had ADD. Results also show a high degree of ADD in patients with insomnia. Further testing showed some of these patients also suffered severe memory impairment, depression, dyslexia and illiteracy.

Researchers also say that patients with sleep disorders who are not assessed for additional conditions may continue to suffer from significant health problems and they stress on the need for patients to inform their healthcare provider of any related conditions that could be contributing to their sleep difficulties.
