The Obstructive Sleep Apnea Connection

• An estimated 40% of men who have type II diabetes have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and 50% of long-term OSA sufferers have high blood pressure. • Studies show that depressed people are five times more likely to have OSA than non-depressed people. • Sleep apnea is strongly associated with obesity (even moderate obesity). • In the US, an estimated 40,000 cardiovascular deaths are thought to be related to OSA each year. Ask your Doctor about getting a sleep study done to see if Obstructive Sleep Apnea might be affecting your health.
