What could be the reason why you wake up too early in the morning? Not enough internal melatonin?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Depression, diabetes

Well, if you are just lying there it's likely depression and/or anxiety.
If you wake up a lot to empty your bladder think diabetes or sleep apnea. If you are coughing you probably have asthma. When my wife was 34 she woke up a lot because the baby was crying. I slept right through that.

If you use bathroom after going to bed, bright lights can suppress melatonin & interrupt sleep.
