Sleep-Related Eating Disorder: Causes, Treatment, and More
Sleep-related eating disorder (SRED) is a parasomnia that links eating disorders to partial arousal during the transition between wakefulness and non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep. It is characterized by dysfunctional eating and drinking upon partial arousal from a stage of NREM sleep (also known as slow-wave sleep). As a form of sleepwalking, it entails partial or complete amnesia of the event. According to one study, the estimated prevalence of SRED was nearly 5% in the general population. The disorder is more common than generally recognized, and we can agree it requires more public awareness. This type of connection...

BOSTON (CBS) – Is your partner able to drink several cups of coffee before bed yet one cup keeps you up all night? As it turns out, some people may be more sensitive to caffeine than others, probably due to genetics.

In people with high-sensitivity, even small amounts of caffeine can be arousing and cause sleep problems. Those with “regular” sensitivity to caffeine can drink 2-5 cups of...
