Sleep Apnea ElmhurstDoes this sound familiar?

You are experiencing restless sleeps because of the chronic snoring coming from your loved one. Maybe you are the snorer, and your loved one gives you a swift kick every night.

While we poke fun at our loved ones who snore, in reality, snoring is no laughing matter. It could be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a serious sleeping disorder that can lead to critical health risks.

What are the symptoms of OSA?

About 30 million Americans have OSA, and only 3 million are diagnosed. If you have OSA, you may experience the following:

  • Chronic snoring
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Repeated breathing interruptions
  • Irritability or personality change
  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Lack of concentration
  • Short memory loss

If not treated, OSA can worsen to severe sleep apnea, leading to serious health risks including:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Depression
  • Death
