The Importance of Diagnosis and Treatment

Sleep disorders can seriously interfere with one's overall emotional or physical health, often leading to depression, reduced concentration and impaired memory and judgment. The extreme fatigue caused by sleep disorders can inhibit an individual's job performance and social skills, as well as increase the risk of car and work-related accidents. Lack of quality sleep also lowers the body's ability to resist and fight illnesses. As a result, the sleep-deprived person is often sick. If you feel that you may have a sleep disorder, talk with your primary provider or contact Altru's Sleep Center.
