Sleep. The topic is enough to keep you up at night! An estimated 50 to 70 million Americans have sleep disorders or are sleep deprived. Nine million of them are taking prescription medications in an effort to get a better night's rest. This week on Mayo Clinic Radio we'll tackle the "Sandman" and get some answers - from sleep aids to shift work to the medical consequences of untreated sleep disorders. Eric Olson, M.D., with Mayo's Center for Sleep Medicine, will be our guest. He'll be joined by Joseph Kaplan, M.D., from Mayo's Sleep Disorders Center in Florida. We hope you’ll listen.
Note: You can hear the program LIVE Saturdays at 9 am CT on I Heart Radio via KROC AM. The show is taped for rebroadcast by some affiliates. On Twitter follow #MayoClinicRadio and tweet your questions.
