Sleep Disorder Information

Sleep complaints are common among millions of Americans. Lack of sleep or poor-quality sleep often causes daytime tiredness, irritability and difficulty concentrating. Certain sleep disorders are also associated with an increased risk of high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, depression and obesity.

A number of factors can contribute to sleep loss, but many people do not recognize common signs and symptoms of chronic yet treatable sleep disorders. The team at the St. Luke's Sleep Medicine and Research Center is skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of sleep disorders in patients of all ages.
