Hypersomnia is a disease characterized by excessive sleeping. People suffering from the disease usually have episodes when they are faced by too much sleep. A person suffering from the disease can sleep when carrying out any activity. For example, the person can fall asleep while talking, or working. This disease is very dangerous as someone can even fall asleep while driving a vehicle. This puts the life of the driver and other motorists at risk. Despite all the time spent sleeping, the person normally wakes up feeling fatigued as if having had no rest at all.

Hypersomnia has been discovered to begin in adolescence and in young adulthood. The symptoms of the disease include; anxiety, irritability, slow thinking, lack of energy, of memory and overacting among other symptoms. The disease is usually as a result of many factors, these could include;

• Brain injury, head injury or a tumor in the head
• Depression
• Alcohol and other substance abuse
• Taking medication for diseases such as depression and anxiety
• Being overweight
• Suffering from illnesses such as multiple sclerosis or epilepsy

Hypersomnia causes weight gain because, the person gets to use minimum energy to burn fat and their metabolism rates are reduced. Some people who suffer from recurrent hypersomnia have been known to eat excessively. This, combined with lack of exercise makes them overweight, further triggering the problem of over-sleeping. It is therefore necessary that a person suffering from the disease should ensure that, they spend a minimum of thirty minutes per day doing exercises. This will help increase their rate of metabolism and also help in fat in to reduce weight.

The disease is usually treated using prescription drugs. The drugs are usually prescribed after a person has shown symptoms for a period of a month or more. The doctor will prescribe the medication while at the same time try to deal with the underlying causes. However, one also needs to take control of their eating habits. They need to eat healthier foods which will not cause the body to gain excess weight. They also need to eat quantities that the body requires. They should also establish a regular sleeping routine so that their bodies know when it is time to sleep and when to be awake. These changes will help in ensuring that one sleeps for lesser hours and that they have time to get involved in daily activities. Exercises, eating healthy and also regular sleep patterns will help solve the problem of inactivity and hence help in losing weight.
