It is crucial that patients in Arkansas who may suffer from a sleep disorder seek diagnosis and treatment from SomnoDiagnostics. Sleep related problems have created an endemic health crisis in the United States where 50 to 70 million people are estimated to currently suffer from a sleep disorder. Such untreated sleep problems can lead to severe health risks such as heart arrhythmia, hormone imbalance, high blood pressure, impaired memory and concentration, congestive heart failure, diabetes, and stroke. Common signs of sleep disorders include snoring, hypertension, obesity, depression, sexual dysfunction, daytime sleepiness, pauses in nocturnal breathing, and nocturnal angina. Fortunately, the staff at SomnoDiagnostics focuses solely on treating sleep disorders in order to prevent elevated health risks.
