Health tip # 20

Sleep Apnea

Chronic Sleep Apnea is a condition in which one actually quits breathing for short episodes during sleep. Ask your bed partner if he or she notices that you snore heavily, choke, gasp, or stop breathing during sleep. The condition is easily diagnosed by doctors trained in sleep disorders, by simply going to a sleep clinic. Some symptoms include; a “snorting” sound with abrupt wakening; feeling exhausted even after you have slept for several hours; lack of concentration; and even falling asleep during the day while driving or on the job. This condition can be life threatening and is treatable.

Some tips that may help reduce apnea severity:

  • Loosing weight is one of the most important action you can take to cure your sleep apnea
  • Avoid excessive alcohol
  • Cigarette smoking worsens swelling in the upper airway, making snoring worse. So quit smoking.
