Did you know that an estimated 40% of Americans from the ages of 30 to 60 suffer from treatable sleep disorders?

If untreated, sleep disorders can lead to an increased risk of :

    • Heart Attack or Stroke
    • High Blood pressure or Hypertension
    • Automobile or work related accidents
    • Obesity and Diabetes

How can you know if you have a sleep disorder? Some of the indicators are:

    • Having a hard time falling or staying asleep
    • Being tired during the day- even if you've slept
    • Snoring
    • Morning headaches
    • Frequent nighttime urination
    • Weight gain
    • Movements in sleep (restlessness or kicking)
    • Difficulty concentrating
    • Hypertension
    • Depression or mood swings
    • Sexual dysfunction

What can be done?

The first step is to talk to your physician about your symptoms. Your physician can order an overnight polysomnogram (sleep study), a tool used to identify a sleep disorder. Ask your physician to refer you to a Comprehensive Sleep Center for accurate diagnostic testing.
