Sleep Apnoea Has Serious Consequences For Up To 20 Million Americans; Many Remain Undiagnosed

undiagnosed manAn estimated 50 percent of Americans snore while they sleep. Snoring is the major symptom of sleep apnoea, a sleep-disordered breathing condition. The risk factors of sleep apnoea are obesity, family history of sleep apnoea, and history of both diabetes and hypertension.

The brain of sleep apnoea patients prevents suffocation by jerking them between deep sleep and light sleep, and even momentary wakefulness that people barely remember. An estimated 80 to 90 percent of people with sleep apnoea are undiagnosed.

Undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnoea has significant negative effects on health and quality of life. Sleep apnoea is linked to heart failure, high blood pressure stroke and irregular heartbeat. Loud snoring is a significant symptom. See a doctor to find out if you have sleep apnoea, and get treatment - as it can seriously affect your health.
