Insomnia severity more pronounced in older HispanicsJuly 7, 2016 |
by Jacob Ruppert
Insomnia is a more pronounced problem than expected among Hispanics over age 50, according to results of a study by Christopher N. Kaufmann, PhD, and his coauthors.
Dr. Kaufmann and his colleagues studied 22,252 participants of white, Non-Hispanic black, Hispanic, or other race/ethnicity. Participant data came from a nationally representative survey from 2002 to 2010, in which patients rated the severity of four insomnia symptoms. All participants were adults older than 50 years.
