Why some women in their 40s can't sleep

HOUSTON (November01, 2017)

The Centers for Disease Control confirms suspicions from women everywhere - they can't sleep. The CDC said the sleep duration and quality among the majority of females 40-59 is not great. Dr. Sudha Tallavajhula, medical director at TIRR Memorial Hermann Neurological Sleep Medicine Center said, “These particular hormones change that particular cycling within women and as that starts to change, not only are there physical imbalances, so these are the hot flashes, these are urinary abnormalities, everything in fact starts to change around that age. Even the risks of heart attacks and strokes, which in women is lower, around menopause starts to equate with males.”
