Hypertension

Studies have shown that there is strong evidence for a link between Sleep Apnea and Hypertension. Your Snoring could be putting a great strain on  your cardiovascular system.

Heart Failure

Heart Failure affects approximately 5 million Americans and is associated with repeated   hospitalizations and increased mortality. Studies have shown that the prevalence of Heart Failure increases significantly with age. The same is true for Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). This may lead to a vicious cycle between SDB and Heart Failure.

Stroke

Up to 70% of those who have survived a Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) have a  history of Sleep Apneaor Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB).

Type II Diabetes

Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs when the softer tissues of the upper airway collapse   and close off the airway. A relatively small collapse can cause full closure of the airway may prevent breathing for extended periods and lead to significant drops in the blood oxygen supply, or hypoxia.

Weight Gain

More than 30% of Americans are obese, that is with a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than  30. Studies suggest that as we become more sedentary and our caloric intake increases, obesity will reach epidemic proportions in the future. 

ADHD

Recent research shows that untreated sleep disorders in children can lead to impaired working memory, reduced levels of wakefulness, and symptoms like that of Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
