There are many ways in which your healthy sleep cycle can become damaged over the long term. Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and insomnia can interfere with normal physical, mental and emotional functioning. 

Disturbances to a healthy sleep cycle can be more common in the elderly. They can result from physical changes that happen naturally as we get older, or they can result from a primary sleep disorder or a secondary sleep problem resulting from a variety of causes, or a combination of the three. Sleep disorders decrease quality of life causing daytime sleepiness, tiredness, and lack of energy. Poor quality of sleep can also lead to confusion, difficulty concentrating, and poor performance on tasks. 

According to recent studies, women can suffer from insomnia at two to three times the rate that men do. Men on the other hand are twice as likely to have their slumber spoiled by sleep apnea, a chronic condition characterized by brief episodes of restricted breathing whereas women may experience the symptoms of sleep apnea differently. Obstructive sleep apnea can commonly be mistaken in women for depression, diabetes, hypertension and a host of other conditions, according to the U.S. National Sleep Foundation. There are also certain conditions unique to women that raise their risk of suffering from the disorder; one of them is polycystic ovary syndrome and another is pregnancy.
