SLEEP AND DEMENTIA

Not getting enough sleep can lead to serious health problems – even dementia. Only about one-third of U.S. adults get the recommended eight hours of sleep each night. Being sleep deprived for longer periods of time can have serious consequences. Research shows people diagnosed with dementia are more likely to have had issues with sleep in the past.


Getting adequate rest is important for keeping your brain functioning well. Sleep is the time when your brain rests, relaxes and recharges. You wake up refreshed and ready to face another day when you get enough rest. When you don’t, you may find your entire body reacts negatively. You’re in a bad mood, your thinking is clouded and your muscles are weak or even ache. Chronic sleep deprivation may lead to a higher risk of heart attack or stroke. One study suggests sleep deprivation could increase your dementia risk by 20 percent. Another study found missing just one night of sleep can lead to extra beta-amyloid in your brain. Beta-amyloid is a protein that plays a role in developing dementia.


Not getting enough sleep is only one potential risk factor for developing dementia. But just because you’re currently struggling with sleep right doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to develop dementia. That being said, there are steps you can take to start sleeping better.
