Are you sleeping well? Waking up rested? If not it could pose a more serious health threat than you think.
Getting a good night’s sleep is vital to your overall health, safety and quality of life. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke.* With over 80 types of sleep disorders, it’s easy to see why so many of us aren’t getting the sleep we need.
The Sleep Medicine Center at DeKalb Regional Medical Center specializes in diagnosing and treating sleep disorders such as insomnia, narcolepsy, sleep apnea, snoring, and restless legs syndrome. A sleep study monitors your sleeping patterns to determine why you may be having problems. Your doctor may suggest this treatment if you experience long-term sleeplessness or other recurring problems.
The Sleep Center performs sleep studies for adults. Sleep Studies at the Sleep Center take place in comfortable, home-like rooms.
Our Neurology and Sleep Clinic is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and provides comfortable rooms supervised by trained sleep technicians who can monitor up to four patients each night. We perform tests for 90 different sleeping and walking disorders, including sleep apnea.
