Research says those who don't get enough sleep could be at higher risk of dementia

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - If you aren't getting enough shut-eye, researchers say you may be at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

Doctors say many people are struggling to get a good night's sleep regularly.

They find a third of Americans don't get enough sleep and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says this is a growing public health problem.

Experts say disrupted sleep is tied to a higher risk of things like diabetes and stroke.

And now, research suggests that it leads to conditions that hinder information processing, and could cause dementia.
