Helping you to sleep better
How was your sleep last night / this morning?
Are you tired of feeling tired? Do you fall asleep in front of the TV? How did you sleep last night? Are you feeling 'full of beans' today? 1 in 3 people suffer from some form of sleeping problem and as sleep is essential for good health and wellbeing, it's important to solve the sleeping problem as urgently as possible. On average, a person needs 8 hours sleep a night in order to function well during the day, but a high percentage of people don't get more than five hours sleep a night. If you don't sleep properly, the following can happen to you: memory problems, dizziness and headaches, depression, diabetes, short temper, weight gain. Do any of these ring a bell with you?

Anaemia a diagnosis of iron deficiency can be made when a person has both low hemoglobin and low hematocrit (HCT) plus low serum ferritin. Serum iron and, transferrin-iron saturation percentage will also be low in a person who is iron deficient. This is the ratio of the volume of red cells to the volume of whole blood. Normal range for hematocrit is different between the sexes and is approximately 45% to 52% for men and 37% to 48% for women. Left untreated, iron deficiency can lead to anaemia and cause serious problems such as irregular heart beat and shortness of breath. Although a lack of iron can also cause symptoms such as fatigue and restless leg syndrome, insomnia itself is not a direct symptom.
Underactive thyroid gland hypothyroidism is a deficiency in thyroid hormones that causes metabolism and many other bodily functions to slow down. Because thyroid hormones are involved in so many bodily processes, when they are low you can have both daytime and night time symptoms, including fatigue during the day and poor sleep at night.
