Sleep is essential to your health. Scientific studies show that not getting enough sleep can increase your risk of obesity, depression, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. The National Department of Transportation estimates that drowsy driving is responsible for 1,550 deaths every year and another 40,000 non-fatal injuries.
Our need for sleep changes as we age. The National Institute of Health recommends that children should get 10 hours of sleep each night, teens should get between 9 – 10 hours and adults should get between 7-8 hours.
An estimated 50-70 million adults in the U.S. have a sleep disorder. If you think you are suffering from a sleep disorder ask your doctor if a sleep study might be right for you.
