Thyroid Dysfunction and Sleep Disorders


Oct 19, 2019


Thyroid disorders and sleep disorders are common problems in the general population that can affect people of all ages, backgrounds, and sexes, but little is known about their clinical associations. We reviewed the literature assessing the associations between thyroid disease and sleep disorders and noted that hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism have clinical overlap with sleep conditions such as insomnia, restless legs syndrome, and obstructive sleep apnea. These findings highlight the importance of identifying and managing thyroid dysfunction for patients with these common sleep disorders. Additional research is needed to further understand how thyroid dysfunction affects sleep physiology.

I agree with this, I had terrible sleep apnea as well as bruxism where I chipped and ground my teeth, and cpap didnt do a thing for me, even though they promised I would lose weight feel better sleep better etc. it did nothing for me...But a naturopath put me on NDT thyroid as well as HRT and no more apnea or tooth grinding...its definitely that. and, well, all hormones dwindle as we age, thyroid included. stupid specialist only wanted to sell me that 400 dollar machine! it was useless!
