Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea is a well known sleep related breathing disorder that is not diagnosed in 80-90% of people in this country. One of the common misconceptions is that one has to be an older obese snoring man to have obstructive sleep apnea. This statement may be true, but this description only makes up a certain segment of people with this condition. Even young, thin, non-snoring women can have significant obstructive sleep apnea. Untreated, it can lead to or aggravate hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, heart disease, heart attack or stroke. Find out if you may have obstructive sleep apnea and what you can do to treat this condition before medical complications arise.
