Symptoms of Sleep Disorders
When you are tired, both, your judgment and your focus are impaired. You can become moody, reckless and accident prone.
Your hormones balance during the hours you are sleeping. When you get too little sleep production in growth hormone declines and your hormones become imbalanced.
When your immune system is taxed from not enough good sleep it provides less resistance to viruses.
Not sleeping well on a long term basis may lead to insulin resistance and diabetes.
Sleep deprivation can also lead to weight gain, as nutrients (carbohydrates, fats and protein) don't break down in your body the way they should.
While you are sleeping tiny tears in your muscles are repaired. Without sleep your body cannot repair itself fully. This leads to muscle wasting, chronic pain and depression.
