There are many things that affect the amount and the quality of the sleep you get. Some people have trouble falling asleep, while others fall asleep, but wake up often and have difficulty falling back to sleep. Others may have irregular work schedules or work nights.
Sleeping less than seven to eight hours each night is tied to a number of chronic diseases and conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure/hypertension, stroke, obesity, and even depression and cancer.
At St. Luke’s, we treat a variety of sleep-related conditions, including insomnia, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, snoring, and others.
