Slide 1: The Risk Factors Associated With Insomnia Insomnia is basically fairly widespread in America and a great portion of individuals have to deal with it at one time or another. However, most individuals attempt to take care of insomnia on their own and never consult a doctor about it. As a matter of fact, during routine physicals and doctor visits, most medical doctors never even ask about a patients sleep pattern at all. Because there is some very effective sleep medicine available by prescription that can be used for up to six months without any addictive properties, insomnia no longer has to be a treacherous path to walk down. There are certain risk factors that put a person at higher risk for insomnia which may and ought to be addressed. Some insomnia risk factors include getting older or the aged, conflict in one's life, being overworked, sickness in the family, ranking low in social standing, or a psychiatric or psychological problem. Of course those who shall be at a greater risk of developing insomnia would typically be a female over the age of 60, with a history of stress, nervousness, or depression, possibly a combination of all, and one who may have an underlying medical condition.

Studies have shown that insomnia is much higher in females than it is in men. It's believed that the cause for that is that with women there are usually some instances of hormonal fluctuation that could possibly be the cause such as premenstrual syndrome, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. Further, anxiety is rather more prevalent in women than it's in men, therefore this may very well be one more reason that insomnia is higher in women than it is in men. There has also been a relationship between childhood sleep patterns and adult insomnia. Childhood sleep issues would include nightmares, sleep walking, difficulty falling asleep, or restless leg syndrome. Youngsters who experience these issues do have a higher risk of developing insomnia later into adulthood. Another factor that may produce a great risk is ADHD in a baby that spills over into adulthood. What are causes of sleep apnea
