Why Is Your Teen So Sleepy?

Apr 21, 2010 - 3 comments

Sleep Apnea


delayed sleep phase syndrome

Sleepy teens are one of the most ignored groups by the sleep community. Teens are not bigger children, nor are they smaller adults. To dispel some of the common myths and misconceptions about teens and why they are so sleepy, I've invited back Stanford University's internationally renown sleep physician and surgeon Dr. Kasey Li to talk to us about this very important issue.

In this month's Expert Interview, Dr. Li will reveal:
- Why your teen is so tired and sleepy
- Why tonsillectomies don't work all the time
- What happens when children with sleep apnea become teenagers
- What other common sleep conditions besides sleep apnea do teens have?
- What are the treatment options for teens with sleep apnea?

After a long sleepy adolescence, a misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder and a major sinus repair, our now 21 yr old son was finally diagnosed with narcolepsy. He was thoroughly evaluated with both day and night sleep studies and with a definitive diagnosis has been put on treatment which he follows religiously.  The difference in this child is nothing short of miraculous. The sleep specialist he sees has commented that narcolepsy is a much under diagnosed disorder especially in teens. We are and our son is thrilled with the new life this diagnosis and treatment has given him
