Sleep Apnea Do you have it?

👉Do you suffer from Sleep Apnea?


Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a chronic disorder characterized by recurring episodes of limited airflow during sleep. This sudden interruption to your breathing takes you out of the sleep cycle called deep sleep and sometimes even wakes you up.


✔️Has anyone told you that you snore loudly?

✔️Has your partner witnessed you gasp or stop breathing during sleep?

✔️Do you often wake up tired in the morning or you're sleepy during the day?

✔️Do you sometimes wake up with a headache in the morning?

✔️Have your energy and motivation levels decreased?


If you have answered ‘Yes’ to at least two of these, then you are at a higher risk of having sleep apnoea and should seek further medical advice.


Other Factors that increase the risk of OSA include:

▪️Being overweight


▪️Taking certain medications

▪️Nasal congestion such as nasal polyps

▪️Drinking alcohol

▪️A family history of sleep apnoea


OSA can have serious health consequences and can increase the likelihood of developing hypertension, heart disease, atrial fibrillation, stroke, glucose intolerance, and impotence.


OSA should be managed like a chronic disease.


Lifestyle changes can reduce your risk of developing OSA and can also relieve sleep apnoea symptoms.
