Why old people have habitual inability to sleep?
Insomnia is the habitual inability to sleep. Scientists tell us that almost half of all adults in the world especially in poor African countries like Uganda, Kenya, Namibia, Tanzania, Somalia and Angola report having difficulty sleeping.
But less than 10% of the old people in the world discuss the issue of insomnia with their doctors.
Insomnia is caused by mainly stress and anxiety, aging, stimulants, including caffeine, decongestant and thyroid medications.
Habitual inability to sleep may be caused by indigestion, pain, alcohol, sugar and lack of exercise.
