Dr. R Bart Sangal Diagnoses and Treats Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders and Sleep Related Movement Disorders at the Sleep & Attention Disorders Institute in Sterling Heights, Mich.

Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorder

People who are suffering from circadian rhythm sleep disorder are not in sync with the sun’s 24-hour cycle. This may sound odd. However, the human body is constantly adjusting to the earth’s circadian rhythm – the rising and setting of the sun. If your body is not adjusting properly, the result is a sleep problem called circadian rhythm sleep disorder (CRSD).

There are many circadian rhythm sleep disorders and sleep medicine expert Dr. R Bart Sangal is experienced at diagnosing them. Once he figures out what is keeping you awake at night, he will find the best treatment for you. He is located in the Greater Detroit area, where Shelby Township, Sterling Hts, Troy and Rochester Hills meet.

There are many reasons your body rhythm may be out of sync causing you to have trouble falling asleep and stay asleep. These include:

Delayed sleep phase disorder: Patients fall asleep too late at night. Then, they wake up too late in the morning. They complain of insomnia. They have daytime sleepiness in the morning. It is more common in teenagers and college students.

Advanced sleep phase disorder: Patients fall asleep too early and then they wake up too early. They complain of daytime sleepiness in the evening. They have insomnia in the early morning. This occurs in the elderly.

Shift work disorder: Patients are sleepy at work. They try to sleep when they are off work. Then they have insomnia.

Jet lag disorder: People who travel across time zones experience jet lag disorder. It takes a day for every hour of time zone change to recover.

Non-24 hour disorder: Patients fall asleep a little later every day. They wake up a little later every day. This happens in blind people.
