Having sleep apnea can put your wellbeing and health at great risk. If you have a sleep apnea, getting treatment for the disorder is incredibly important. The sleeping disorder disrupts your normal breathing patterns during your sleep by blocking your air flow. In more severe cases, known as central sleep apnea, the brain fails to send the right signals to the body to breath. This can have serious repercussions on your health, including the potential for life-threatening complications

Most of the time, sleep apnea is found in men older than forty, but anyone can develop this disorder. There are also several risk factors that make people more likely to develop sleep apnea. These factors include genetics, a deviated septum, allergies, sinus problems, large tonsils, and being overweight. If you have any of these, it is important that you seek treatment.

Sleep apnea has been known to cause quite a few health issues of varying seriousness, such as depression, ADHD, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, and in rare cases, death. If you or a loved one have sleep apnea, getting treatment is vital to your health.
