CULLMAN – Why is sleep so important to your overall health? In the short term, a lack of adequate sleep can affect judgment, mood, the ability to learn and retain information, and may increase the risk of serious accidents and injury. In the long term, chronic sleep deprivation may lead to a host of health problems including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and even early mortality.
Join Dr. Mark Tafazoli, board-certified sleep specialist, as he discusses signs and symptoms of sleep deprivation. Learn how these problems affect the body, signs you might have a sleep disorder and receive tips for getting adequate sleep.
