Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2014
Between 10 and 20 percent of American adults suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, and as many as 40 percent snore occasionally or chronically. Obstructive sleep apnea causes repeated interruptions to breathing during sleep. While sleep apnea has been associated with multiple health issues, a new study, which was published in “PLOS ONE,” indicates that it may also be associated with brain damage due to inadequate blood flow. Sleep Solution Doctors now offers patients assistance in finding sleep apnea treatment providers in their local areas.
Finding the right sleep apnea doctor enables patients to get the care they need and reduce their risk of health problems, which can include not only brain damage but also depression, attention deficits, memory problems, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke. The link between sleep apnea and cardiovascular disease is particularly strong. This link is believed to be due to the reduced blood oxygen levels, which can interfere with healthy heart rhythms. The Sleep Solution Doctors can help patients find appropriate treatments to alleviate their symptoms of sleep apnea and associated complications.
Patients may need further evaluation if they have any symptoms of sleep apnea, including:
- Daytime fatigue
- Waking with sore throat, dry mouth or headache
- Loud or chronic snoring
- Unexplained weight gain
- Frequently waking up at night
- Reduced sex drive
- High blood pressure
- Cardiovascular disease
Not all snoring is associated with sleep apnea, but it can still be disruptive to an individual’s sleep and his or her partner’s sleep. Snoring-related issues can affect marriages and relationships and lead to personal distress and frustration. The Sleep Solution Doctors offer supportive therapies that can alleviate snoring so that snorers can get a better night’s rest along with their partners.
