Needing More Sleep is a Risk Factor for Dementia
As we age, some systems in the body don’t work as well. Eyesight weakens, there can be some minor age related memory loss and many people move a little slower and don’t stay as active. Sleep disturbances are common as well, but recent research shows that sleeping patterns could be an indicator of another problem seen in the elderly: dementia. Currently estimates put the number of people dealing with some form of dementia at about 46 million globally. In the United States, there are approxima...
