Sleep disorders affect millions of people in this country. Each sleep disorder has its own set of factors which can interfere with daily life, worsen or even lead to other health conditions.
As a general rule, we all feel better when we’ve gotten a good night’s sleep. We can concentrate more, our memory is better and our overall job performance improves. In addition, studies have demonstrated that people who sleep well consistently have a better chance of losing weight or keeping weight off.
Some more serious health conditions can arise if you don’t get the sleep your body needs as well. Sleep apnea for example can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, heart disease, heart attack and in some extreme, untreated cases death.
Having sleep disorders treated not only allow you to feel refreshed and awake during the day, but also allows you to be healthier.
