Learn about Sleep Disorders

Sleep is an essential part of your health; there are a number of different sleep disorders that people of all ages can suffer from. Sleep disorders not only disrupt our lives while we are asleep but also while we are awake. More than 20% of people suffer from sleep disorders. Sleep is the only time in which the brain is able to clear out waste protein. If this protein builds up it can cause dementia. If left untreated, sleep disorders can lead to other diseases including heart attack, diabetes, hypertension, and more. Diagnosing a sleep disorder can be done by an in-lab sleep study or Expert Sleep offers a Home Sleep Test, a low-cost alternative, that allows patients to perform the test in their own home. If you are having trouble sleeping we recommend talking with your physician about scheduling an appointment with our sleep doctors.
