According to the National Center on Sleep Disorder Research, approximately 40 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders including sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome. A sleep disorder can reduce your daytime productivity and increase your risk of accidents and illness.
Could You Have a Sleep Disorder?
If you answered yes to any one of these questions, you may have a sleep deficiency that is affecting you in ways you don't even realize. You are not alone. A recent National Sleep Foundation "Sleep in America" poll found that more than 60 percent of American adults experience sleep problems; however, few have been diagnosed. Most don’t recognize the importance of adequate rest and are not aware of effective methods for preventing and managing sleep problems.
Early detection of a sleep disorder could reduce your risk of asthma, pregnancy complications, heart attack, high blood pressure, memory loss and many other medical problems.
