From Patients

I wish more people knew about this product (SUAD™). I wish my doctors had told me about this years ago. People don't realize the far reaching effects of sleep deprivation, most importantly cell regeneration during the deep sleep stage and how it affects the heart and the multitude of ways it contribute to weight gain. I used to wake up feeling like I'd run a marathon in my sleep, face all swollen and puffy, exhausted, dazed and confused, just counting the minutes until my mid-day nap. Not anymore.

Sleepiness Test

The Epworth Sleepiness Scale can be used to determine your level of daytime sleepiness. A score of 10 or more is considered sleepy. A score of 18 or more is very sleepy. If you score 8 or more on this test, you should consider whether you are getting adequate sleep.

Use the following scale to choose the most appropriate number for each situation:

0 = would never doze or sleep
1 = slight chance of dozing or sleeping
2 = moderate chance of dozing or sleeping
3 = high chance of dozing or sleeping

Complete the test to learn where you stand.
