Sleeping Better Could Prevent Alzheimers


By Molly Clifton

A new study finds that sleep problems may be an early indicator of Alzheimers Disease.

Researchers at Washington University analyzed the nighttime patterns of 145 volunteers.

Participants with early markers for Alzheimers were the least efficient sleepers and took the most naps.

Those results will lead to new research on whether treating sleep disorders can help head off alzheimers.
