Are you getting enough sleep?

sleep lab cortlandThe National Sleep Foundation found that about 70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep problems. If you – or someone you love – experience excessive snoring, insomnia, extreme daytime sleepiness, or abnormal sleep movements, you could be one of them.

Sleep disorders can not only rob you of energy but also have a serious impact on your health and quality of life. Chronic lack of sleep can increase blood pressure, contribute to stress and weight gain, lower your sex drive and affect your judgment, leading to accidents and poor work performance. It’s also tied to a number of chronic diseases, such as depression, diabetes, congestive heart failure and stroke.

Although millions of Americans suffer from sleep disorders, many don’t know it – or they don’t take them seriously enough to seek treatment. It’s important to realize that diagnosing and treating your sleep problems can significantly improve your overall quality of life.

An overnight sleep study with CNY Medical Professionals can identify the cause of your restless nights. We have sleep lab facilities located in both Cortland and Ithaca. Overnight sleep studies are offered seven nights a week with staffing provided by experienced Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (RPSGTs). In addition to a regular polysomnogram, we are also equipped to perform a MSLT, or multiple sleep latency test, to diagnose narcolepsy.
