Best Rx: FusionHealth

BSA - Jeffrey DurmerDr. Jeffrey Durmer from FusionHealth answers a reader’s question about sleep.

Q: I know I should get more sleep, but does it really affect my overall health? 

Yes. Around two-thirds of Americans say they don’t get enough sleep at night. Aside from restoring energy, quality sleep lowers your risk for chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension and heart disease, improves your mood and can help you maintain a healthy weight. Sleeping for less than eight hours per night can alter hormones that affect appetite, leading us to seek higher calorie foods and gain unwanted pounds.
