What happens if you don’t get enough sleep? Why is getting enough sleep important?

Sleep plays a vital role in overall health. When we are not getting adequate quality sleep our bodies work against us. Sleep deprivation and sleep disorders like sleep apnea, increase your risk for obesity, heart failure, stroke, hypertension, dementia, sexual dysfunction, mood disorders and diabetes. An estimated 70 million Americans have sleep apnea, yet nearly 80 percent remain undiagnosed and unknowingly at risk for a host of potentially life-threatening ailments.

Less than five hours of sleep per night doubles the risk of  cardiovascular disease—the leading cause of death in America. Just three consecutive days on that schedule can damage brain cells. The good news is sleep apnea and other sleep disorders are treatable, and the Comprehensive Sleep Care Center is here to offer solutions that will help you rest easier, feel better and reduce your risk for potentially dangerous health complications. We can help you sleep well and live better!
