Bad sleepers are more likely to have a condition
Researchers studied people with sleep problems during REM sleep (deep sleep) at least 15 years before Parkinson’s disease or dementia was detected. These studies have established a connection between people who sleep in restlessness and brain disorders at a later age. On average, it takes 25 years – after determining sleep problems – until the condition occurs. However, this can take up to 50 years.
