Sleep Disorders and Treatments
Sleep disorders cause more problems than simply extra yawns and crankiness. Problems with sleep can cause or make worse numerous other health problems, including issues with the heart, breathing, and brain. Two of the most common sleep disorders — snoring and sleep apnea — are related to diabetes, hypertension, and risk of stroke. Sleep deprivation is also associated with impaired performance, judgment, reasoning, and reaction time.
