General Info about Sleep Disorder

The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep And miles to go before I sleep… wrote the famous English poet Robert Frost in his poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. As the poet reminds you about the promises you have to keep in life, it is also necessary that you get a sound sleep to keep those promises.

Sleep disorders are of different kinds and the reason behind each disorder varies. This may include difficulty falling or staying asleep, falling asleep at inappropriate times, excessive total sleep time or abnormal behaviors associated with sleep.

What is New in Sleep Disorder?

1. Sleep Deprivation and Insulin Resistance may Not be Unrelated After All

Factors such as insufficient sleep and insulin resistance may be linked by improper balance of hormones. An imbalance in testosterone and cortisol hormones due to insufficient sleep can cause increased insulin resistance. Sleep loss can reduce a man's testosterone levels and increases cortisol levels and this can also lead to type 2 diabetes.

2. Two New Devices Help Fight Stress Among Adolescents

Two devices such as EnergyPod and SleepWing were found to reduce stress and improve sleep among adolescents, reveals a new study. EnergyPod and SleepWing can help fight stress and also help migraine sufferers.
