Inside Scoop on Sleep Disorders

Norwalk Hospital sleep disorders expert Christopher Manfredi told the Westport Rotary Club today there is a direct link to weight gain by Americans and lack of sleep. Addressing the club’s weekly meeting at Bertucci’s Restaurant, he said humans need eight hours of sleep a night and anything less could have medical consequences, including weight gain. The director of the hospital’s Sleep Disorders Center also said those who take two or more medications to control high blood pressure are likely to suffer from sleep apnea -– a chronic condition that disrupts sleep. Manfredi, board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary disease and critical care medicine, said in 70 percent of all patients who report sleep apnea, “snoring is a symptom.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
