Get Your Sleep Or Else…

State Of Origin II - QLD v NSW

I just read a new article about lack of sleep and how it may be connected to Alzheimer’s Disease later in life.  Sleep is really important and I surely don’t get enough of it.  Do you?  Do you get the recommended 6-8 hours regularly?  Probably not!  You should though, …and here’s why.

When you have Alzheimer’s, it’s common to experience sleep disturbances.  The part of the brain which handles walking and sleeping is the part that is affected early on in the disease.  A person who has Alzheimer’s has deposits of an abnormal protein called “amyloid”—and scientists at Washington University in St. Louis found that people with no cognitive issues, who just tossed and turned in bed…lying awake, had a higher number of amyloid deposits.  That means you may be more likely to develop Alzheimer’s.  Now, don’t freak out…just because you may have sleep troubles, doesn’t mean you’ll get the disease.  Most sleep problems are not related to Alzheimer’s.  Just something to think about.
