Breaking News: Persistent Insomnia may cause suicidal actions
Saturday, April 4, 2009
Scientists found a new research that consistent Insomnia (sleeplessness) may cause the human beings to take suicidal actions. They have proposed that insufficient sleep may affect cognitive function and lead to poorer judgment, less impulse control and increased hopelessness. A dysfunction involving serotonin, a brain chemical involved in mood regulation that plays an important role in sleep, psychiatric disorders and suicide, is also suspected.

Difficulty falling asleep was a significant predictor of suicidal thoughts and planning. Compared with people who reported no insomnia complaints, those who had trouble initiating sleep had 1.9 times the risk of suicidal ideas and 2.2 times the risk of planning suicide.

The results were adjusted for several factors known to influence suicide, including substance abuse, depression, anxiety disorder and other mood disorders, as well as chronic medical conditions such as stroke, heart disease, lung disease and cancer. They were also adjusted for the influence of sociodemographic factors such as age, gender, and marital and financial status.
