  “The most common sleep disorders are Insomnia; Sleep Apnea; Narcolepsy; Periodic Limb Movement Disorder; Parasomnias and Restless legs syndrome. Untreated sleep disorders can have a negative effect on your health and quality of life, such as high blood pressure, diabetes or obesity to name a few.”
