Don't Ignore Sleep Apnea - 5 Reasons Why


Snoring from Sleep ApneaSleep apnea is a disease that is often overlooked. Many people mistakenly believe that only obese people suffer from this disease. Unfortunately, this is not true; anyone can suffer from sleep apnea. There are many reasons why you should not ignore the signs of this disease, including:

Sleep apnea can be hard on your cardiovascular system

This means you could be at risk for heart disease and stroke, both of which are re often linked to fatalities.

Sleep apnea can cause elevated blood pressure

This causes additional problems with your health and wellness.

Sleep apnea can cause problems with your memory

It has often been related to memory loss as well as difficulty with operating heavy machinery and/or cars.

Some people die in the middle of the night from sleep apnea

This can happen due to a problem that occurs with the rhythm of their heart.

The loss of quality sleep that sleep apnea causes can make you chronically fatigued

This can make it very difficult to function in daily life. For many people this results in the loss of a job, difficulty parenting or even difficulty staying aware enough to drive a car.

If you feel chronically fatigued, feel as if you just cannot get a good night's rest, or if someone tells you that you snore often, you should be evaluated for sleep apnea. This very serious disease is not something to ignore as its risks can become debilitating, if not fatal.
