How do I know if I need a sleep test?
The Sleep Center of Acadiana at Ochsner Lafayette General Medical Center is designed specifically to diagnose and treat sleep disorders. If you are consistently feeling tired or unrested throughout the day, fall asleep unexpectedly or are experiencing difficulty sleeping during the night, you may want to consider sleep testing. One of our neurologists will meet with you in an initial consultation to decide if testing is needed. Sleep tests are usually recommended for those who are overweight, have Type II Diabetes or struggle with snoring.
What are the benefits of treating a sleep disorder?
Treating sleep disorders helps you regain restful sleep, which in turn helps all parts of your body function better. Quality sleep plays a role in many important bodily functions, including immunity, cognitive abilities and weight management. In fact, some sleep disorders, like sleep apnea or obstructive sleep apnea, can be especially destructive to your health due to the obstruction of air during sleep. By addressing serious conditions like these, you can improve your overall quality of life. After receiving treatment, patients tend to have more energy during the day, and enjoy an improved mood, stamina and appetite.
