According to a new Michigan Medicine-led study, teens and young adults who are transgender are four times more likely to have a sleep disorder than cisgender youth.  Ronald Gavidia, M.D., M.S., a U-M sleep medicine physician and assistant professor of neurology, suggests that sleep health in transgender and gender-nonconforming youth has rarely been studied and that these results are concerning.
