Do you know the warning signs of sleep apnea? Would you be able to recognize these symptoms in yourself or in a loved one? Untreated sleep apnea isn’t something to take lightly. The health implications can be tremendous, from diabetes to heart disease and more. In fact, untreated sleep apnea can take up to twelve years off of your life expectancy. Twelve years–that’s a lot of time to sacrifice for something that can be successfully treated. Don’t be one of the 80% of people suffering with undiagnosed or untreated sleep apnea!
If you or a loved one has any of the following symptoms, speak with a health care professional right away about getting tested for sleep apnea:
- snoring, especially loud or excessive snoring
- excessive daytime sleepiness
- high blood pressure, especially when it doesn’t improve with medication
- irritability, moodiness, or depression
- gasping or choking during sleep
- frequent morning headaches
- obesity (BMI over 30)
