Sleep Disorder Education - Gwinnett Sleep

What is Sleep Disorder?

Sleep disorders are serious medical conditions that may cause chronic diseases. Many people are affected by sleep disorders, and it is imperative that they are able to identify them and seek proper treatment. Some of the most common yet possibly serious sleep disorders include:

Sleep Apnea is a common disorder where someone has one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while sleeping. This can result in poor sleep quality, and it is one of the leading causes of excessive daytime sleepiness. It can also increase the risk for high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, and diabetes.


Insomnia creates problems either falling asleep or staying asleep. Insomniacs also experience delayed sleep onset, arousals during the night, waking up early in the morning, or low quality sleep. While it is usually a result of stress, insomnia can also be a sign of an anxiety or mood disorder or a symptom of chronic pain or arthritis.


Narcolepsy causes a person to have difficulty staying awake or suddenly falling asleep during the day, even after getting enough sleep at night. This can affect a person’s studies, work, and social life. While it cannot be cured, it can be treated with medication, lifestyle changes, and education.


Sleep is very important when it comes to one’s health. Gwinnett Sleep aims to educate our community about sleep disorders. We provide sleep education sessions and seminars for medical practices so they can deliver the best treatment options for their patients. 

Our Approach to Sleep Disorder Treatment

At Gwinnett Sleep, we take a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating sleep disorders. Our team of board-certified sleep specialists, pulmonary physicians, and respiratory therapists works collaboratively to provide personalized care tailored to each patient’s individual needs. Our approach to sleep disorder treatment includes:

Comprehensive Evaluation

We begin by conducting a thorough evaluation to assess your sleep habits, medical history, and symptoms. This may involve completing a sleep questionnaire, undergoing diagnostic tests such as polysomnography (overnight sleep study), and keeping a sleep diary to track your sleep patterns and behaviors.

Accurate Diagnosis

Once we have gathered all necessary information, we work to accurately diagnose your sleep disorder. This may involve analyzing the results of diagnostic tests, ruling out other potential causes of your symptoms, and identifying any underlying medical conditions that may be contributing to your sleep problems.

Personalized Treatment Plan

Based on your diagnosis and individual needs, we develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to address your specific sleep disorder. Treatment options may include lifestyle modifications, behavioral therapy, medications, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for sleep apnea, or other interventions designed to improve your sleep quality and overall well-being.


Ongoing Monitoring and Support

We provide ongoing monitoring and support to ensure that your treatment plan is effective and meeting your needs. This may involve follow-up appointments, adjustments to your treatment regimen as needed, and ongoing education and support to help you manage your sleep disorder effectively.
