Obesity can be cause and symptom of poor sleep quality

Obesity can be cause and symptom of poor sleep quality

Among all the causes that can lead to insomnia or poor sleep, obesity is certainly one of the most known and common. Most people who have difficulty sleeping or do not feel comfortable at night have some level of overweight, be it moderate or severe. In more extreme cases, it can be said that the chances of the individual presenting nights with insufficient rest are enormous. Often the patient does not even notice, but is not resting properly due to being overweight.

The first factor is explained by physics. Obese people have more difficulty in getting around, including in bed. Sometimes a simple change of position or side becomes an extreme exercise. Obesity can be a cause and symptom of poor sleep quality - Photo: Getty Images

The two most common problems presented by obese people are: snoring and sleep apnea. It's easy to understand. When a person becomes fat, he accumulates fatty tissue around the neck. This extra mass in the body presses the airways and, in addition to the positions in the bed, cause narrowing of the pharynx (snoring) and, in some cases, until closing (apnea).

According to sleep specialist Fernanda Haddad, the accumulated fat in the neck is the cause of such problems. The relationship between obesity and sleep problems is greater in men because they have a greater propensity to gain weight in the cervical region, while many women focus on gaining weight in the hip.

Sleep disorders

The problems that obesity causes for good sleep also occur in the reverse direction. That is, even people who are not technically obese may show weight gain due to snoring and sleep apnea. A Canadian study found that young people who sleep in insufficient time and quality are subject to more weight gain.

Other research has also linked sleep deficiency to hormonal disorders that eventually lead to weight gain. One example is the reduction of the amount of leptin, the satiety hormone, that occurs when a person can not get enough sleep. Because he does not rest at night, the patient does not consider himself satiated even after a meal which, by his bodily standards, would be extremely satisfactory. Thus, the person chooses to increase the amount of food eaten and fattened.

Stress and anxiety, two known causes of obesity, are also related to sleep. When the night is not well-slept, the subjects become more anxious and nervous than their normal patterns.

In the face of these physical-psychological problems, they choose to eat too much food and are extremely caloric.

Scientists may have unraveled the mystery of female orgasm

Scientists have researched for centuries what the function of female orgasm would be in the context of reproduction. A new study by a pair of scientists at Yale University in the United States shows that the orgasm of women is linked to their evolutionary past, when the hormonal discharge that accompanies the climax was necessary for the ovular woman.

Repeating nightmares indicate that something may be missing in your life

The experience of having nightmares can be unpleasant. Now imagine having the same nightmare night after night. It is a stressful situation, and may even decrease our desire to go to sleep. Netta Weinstein, a senior psychology professor at the University of Cardiff in the UK, has developed a study published in the journal Motivation and Emotion, which indicated that people who felt frustrated and powerless in their lives were more likely to have recurring nightmares than those who felt satisfied and in control of their routines.
