Episode - Can Hyperthyroidism Cause Insomnia?


Can Hyperthyroidism Cause Insomnia?

Sleep issues are very common in those with hyperthyroidism.

To get better sleep, we need to take a two-pronged approach: addressing the elevated thyroid hormone levels, which are the root cause of the issues, and optimizing other factors known to impact sleep directly.

Today I’m sharing how hyperthyroidism can affect your sleep, common factors that might be causing difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting restful sleep, and what you can do to start getting a better night’s sleep.


During this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • The role of stress in insomnia
  • Why I recommend testing your adrenals
  • How blood sugar imbalances can impact your sleep
  • Optimizing your room temperature and lighting
  • The basic rules of good sleep hygiene


As always, I hope you’ve found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
