A Good Night’s Sleep Can Improve Your Health!January 3, 2019
Nearly 40 million people have sleep problems. Left untreated, sleep disorders can lead to increased health risks, including heart-related issues, fatigue-related accidents, slower metabolism leading to weight gain, increased insulin resistance, and decreased quality of life.
Diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders can have dramatic health benefits including:
- Enhanced quality of life: improved energy, mood, focus, concentration, safety driving, reduction of waking during the night to urinate
- Reduced cardiovascular risk
- Reduced insulin resistance and metabolic effects, possible benefit in helping with weight reduction when done in conjunction with structured regimen of diet and exercise
If you suffer from sleep-related issues, talk to your primary care doctor. He or she can discuss options, arrange sleep testing, and can set up a consultation with one of our leading experts who are board-certified in Sleep Medicine.
