Insomnia affects 40% in primary care

Around 40% of primary care patients suffer from insomnia linked to other conditions, according a study by the University of Auckland.

Researchers surveyed 955 patients from three general practices on their sleep habits and found 388 reported difficulty sleeping on at least three nights per week during the previous month.

Most cited the cause as depression or anxiety.

The authors of the study said: “This is the first description of the prevalence of causes of insomnia in primary care.”
