WHAT DISEASES CAN INSOMNIA LEAD TO?

Turkey Medicals interviewed member Neurologist Professor in Turkey who noted that the problem of insomnia increases with the pandemic Dr. ”This situation is causing serious damage to our general health in Turkey, ” he said.

For a year, changes in our life habits due to coronavirus have brought many problems. One of them is the problem of insomnia, which is as common as the epidemic… Turkish Doctor, insomnia can cause diseases listed as follows:

.
WEAKENS IMMUNITY

When we are sleep deprived, the defense cells necessary for the proper functioning of our immune system decrease. This condition also weakens our body resistance, causing us to get sick frequently.

.
CAUSES A HEART ATTACK

Sleep gives the heart the rest it needs. In a poor quality sleep, the heart cannot rest and blood pressure does not drop. Our body becomes stressed; we release more adrenaline, cortisol and stress hormones during the day. These hormones also increase the risk of heart disease and stroke by raising blood pressure during sleep. People who suffer from insomnia for a long time have a higher incidence of heart attacks and cerebral palsy. Insomnia can also trigger diseases such as hypertension, obesity and diabetes.

.
INCREASES PAIN

Dopamine, which plays a key role in pain, is the most important hormone that provides electrical communication between nerve cells. In addition to giving a sense of happiness and pleasure, it also plays a fundamental role in sleep Jun. It strengthens our memory, increases our attention and regulates our state of emotion. Poor quality sleep reduces dopamine in our brains, causing pain, irritability and depression.
Fattening

The next day, when you are sleep deprived, your metabolic rate drops. Energy cannot be burned, it is stored as fat. Less than six hours of sleep causes excess fat to be stored around the waist. An increase in cortisol, that is, the stress hormone caused by insomnia, also causes fat accumulation around the waist, creating a desire to consume more sugary and fatty foods.

.
TRIGGERS DEPRESSION

The frequency of depression increases in people who have long-term sleep problems. Insomnia also negatively affects our quality of life, social and personal life, and work performance.

.
DO THEM

Eat dinner no later than 19:00. Avoid black tea and coffee with carbohydrate, sugary foods late. Take a warm shower before bed and drink fennel or chamomile tea. Melatonin is a very important hormone that regulates sleep and governs sleep rhythm. Darkness increases the secretion of this hormone, so do not use night light. Consume natural melatonin sources such as bananas, apples, walnuts, red pepper, greener vegetables and tomatoes before sleep.
