13. ADHD and Sleep Disorders

A recent study has shown that adolescents diagnosed with ADHD are significantly more likely to suffer from sleep disorders such as insomnia, sleep terrors, nightmares, and snoring, compared to controls. I suspect these problems during sleep stem from insufficent fats. The brain is unable to properly integrate the newly acquired knowledge and experiences of the day before into long term memory stores, due to the insufficient supply of fats to build the myelin sheaths surrounding newly constructed nerve fibers and reinforcements. These deficiencies in resources critical to the goals of sleeping may be the source of extreme restlessness, wakefulness, and night terrors.
