For the study, a team of scientists from the New York City looked through the food diaries completed by more than 50,000 women who were in their mid-60s. These women had already been through the menopause and had the glycaemic index of their diet measured.

The analysis of the received results showed that women with the higher glycaemic index were 11% more likely to report insomnia compared to women with the lowest glycaemic index.

Lead study author, Dr James Gangwisch, a psychiatrist at Columbia University, says: “The take-home message here is to limit the consumption of highly processed carbohydrates such as added sugars since they could contribute toward or exacerbate insomnia.”
