Main description

More than 20 million women have trouble sleeping at night. Yet sleep disorders among women are prone to misdiagnosis and therefore mistreatment. A Woman's Guide to Sleep Disorders is the first comprehensive book written about sleep disorders in women by a leading medical expert in the field. Dr. Kryger provides a thorough overview of sleep disorders among women. He shows how to determine whether a sleep problem is a disorder, help pinpoint causes, and what can be done to help. A resource guide, sleep questionnaire, and worksheet are included to assist the reader--and her doctor--in evaluating her condition.

Back cover copy

A pioneer in the field of sleep medicine shows women how to solve their sleep problems

Do you toss and turn at night? Do you wake up repeatedly at all hours? Do you fall asleep in the daytime when you don't want to? These could be symptoms of a sleep disorder that may make you irritable and exhausted and could endanger your health.

Sleep disorders among women are common, but until recently they were largely misunderstood or misdiagnosed by the medical establishment. With A Woman's Guide to Sleep Disorders, Meir Kryger, M.D., a leader in sleep disorder research and treatment, breaks through the mystery to show you why your sleep is unsatisfying or unpredictable, what the causes might be, and--best of all--what you can do to fix them. You'll discover:

  • What healthy sleep is and how much you should be getting every night
  • Sleep problems unique to women, including those related to menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause
  • How family, psychological conditions, and the 24/7 world can cause sleep problems
  • How to combat specific disorders such as sleep apnea and insomnia that may be causing your symptoms
  • Guidance to the help and resources you need to get treatment

The journey to a good night's sleep begins with the right information. With the help of Dr. Kryger, you can begin that journey and achieve the nightly rest you need for a healthier and happier life.
