Low levels of testosterone in women can also interrupt healthy sleep patterns.
For instance, affected women may suffer bouts of insomnia, sleep apnea, or just struggle with frequent waking and other sleep disturbances during the night. Of these symptoms, sleep apnea is the most serious and troublesome. Over extended periods of time, sleep apnea increases your risk for heart problems. It needs to be diagnosed and treated to reduce your risk of these types of serious effects.
Researchers aren’t quite sure why reduced testosterone levels in women cause sleep disturbances, but the prevailing theory is that they may cause other imbalances in important regulatory hormones and brain chemicals that promote healthy, restful sleep. However, disrupted sleep patterns may result from any number of medical problems, or they might not signal an underlying problem at all. From a general standpoint, you should seek medical attention if your normal sleep habits are disrupted for four to six weeks, or longer. We would love to help you knock this symptom OUT!!
