Sleepless nights can affect overall health
May 10, 2013 (WLS) -- Insomnia can make you frustrated and fatigued, but you may be headed for more trouble than that.
Middle-aged and older adults with insomnia may be more likely to end up in the hospital or needed home health care services.
People with insomnia often get too little sleep, have poor sleep quality and don't feel refreshed when they get up in the morning.
And that can affect your overall health.
Patients and doctors need to take this seriously.
Experts suggest treating and carefully monitoring insomnia symptoms might go a long way in keeping some people out of the hospital.
