Sleep is essential to good health
Sleep is critical to good health, and lack of sleep can result in chronic and potentially life-threatening diseases. Sleep apnea—one of more than 70 sleep-related disorders—has been linked to diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease and obesity.
Snoring and daytime sleepiness can be symptoms of a sleep disorder.
If you are experiencing sleep problems that leave you feeling exhausted and disrupt your daily life, talk to your primary care provider, or call us directly for a consultation.
The following could be symptoms of a sleep disorder:
- Waking up feeling tired (after a minimum of seven hours of sleep)
- Daytime sleepiness (feeling sleepy during meetings and while driving)
- Loud snoring or being told you snore
- Waking up gasping or choking

My name is Deanne Nelson, and I’m from Shakopee. I have a condition called idiopathic hypersomnia with long sleep time, a disorder that causes excessive drowsiness.
The illness is puzzling and frustrating, as the cause is unknown. It’s not due to sleep deprivation, disturbed sleep, insomnia or sleep apnea. It’s similar to narcolepsy (in which people often sleep poorly at night and fall asleep suddenly during the day), but without the muscle weakness. At its most severe, it was truly crippling. I’ve had a hard time getting out of bed since high school, but the disease got much worse about two years ago—I was sleeping up to 9 hours a night during the week, and up to 13 hours on weekends. And I was still tired! When I was away from home, I’d have to take brief naps during the day, sometimes in my car. It was torture to have to function like that. I felt like this mysterious illness took all the zest out of my life.
