Sleep encompasses one third of our lives so it is important that we have good quality sleep. Poor sleep has been linked to several health issues which include high blood pressure, blood sugar instability, weight gain, mood instability, and attention problems. Common sleep disorders include insomnia, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and narcolepsy. A board certified sleep specialist can properly diagnose and treat sleep disorders that could be affecting your physical and emotional health.
