More than half of middle-aged women suffer poor sleep due to menopause, CDC figures show

More than half of middle-aged women suffer from poor sleep due to menopause, CDC figures show. 

Both the quality and the amount of hours of sleep someone gets each night is a contributor to their health and wellness. 

Fewer than eight hours of sleep can lead to chronic problems such as diabetes and heart disease.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 56 percent of women going through a hormonal change such as menopause were more likely to sleep fewer than seven hours, and few slept soundly.

Postmenopausal women are also more likely to have trouble falling and staying asleep than women who have not experienced symptoms of menopause yet.
