Regain Your Beauty Sleep By Putting a Stop to Sleep Apnoea
Losing sleep can lead to early aging. It can also cause you to lose sleep through obstruction in breathing or snoring. An article from http://www.examiner.com has offered several facts on how to stop sleep apnoea:
Sleep apnoea used to be seen as an irritating abnormality among many Americans. But in the past decade, it has become apparent that the sleep disorder can cause other life-threatening ailments.
Untreated severe apnoea can take 10 to 15 years off someone’s life.
Sleep apnoea, which is estimated to affect 5 to 10 percent of Americans and is undiagnosed in most of them, can also lead to obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, strokes and heart attacks.
The most common type is obstructive sleep apnoea. It causes your airway to collapse or become blocked during sleep. Normal breathing commences with a choke or snort sound.
In cases of mild to moderate sleep apnoea, losing weight can be an option in overweight and obese individuals.
Avoiding alcohol and sleeping pills can also be done.
Changing sleep positions to improve breathing.
Quit smoking to relieve nasopharyngeal inflammation.
Refrain from sleeping on your back.
In more severe cases of apnoea, a person may have a deviated nasal septum, enlarged tonsils, or a small overbite on the lower jaw, causing the throat to be too narrow. In these cases, surgery may be needed to correct the problem.
