Sleep Apnea & Snoring Have Physical & Emotional Implications.

Your bed partner is not sleeping well and unhappy, and that impacts your relationship. Maybe you have high blood pressure or diabetes. Maybe one of your parents suffered from the health consequences of a heart attack or stroke at a young age. Or, maybe you are single and dating, and you are trying to decide whether it's more embarrassing to snore or more embarrassing to pull out that CPAP machine. Whatever your motivation, the simple reality is that sleep apnea and snoring are signs of a compromised airway. Obstructive sleep apnea also has very real implications for your health and well being. Multiple medical studies have demonstrated strong links between the presence of untreated obstructive sleep apnea and high blood pressure, early heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. Sleep apnea is also linked with depression, daytime fatigue, and poor concentration. This is a real problem with real consequences, both for the sufferer and their bed partner.
