Could you or a loved one be one of the many people undiagnosed with a sleep or breathing disorder? It’s estimated that 20-25 percent of all adults have this type of disorder. The majority of patients who suffer from this insidious condition, however, are not even aware there is a problem. They know that they are tired or maybe have been told they snore, but they have no idea they have episodes of not breathing at night (apnea). Dr. Gleave in Salt Lake City, UT has the training and equipment to help diagnose and treat many of these cases. If the case is more severe, he works closely with a sleep physician for referral and CPAP treatment.

Don’t Let Sleep Apnea Affect Your Health

The consequences of doing nothing are severe. To deprive your body of the needed oxygen and rest it needs each night is very taxing to your whole system. It will substantially decrease your body and mind’s performance, not to mention adding to many other health problems. These include depression, hypertension, poor healing, impotence and loss of libido, memory loss, stress to sleep partner, weight gain, increased frequency of urination, acid reflux, and teeth grinding.

Patients with untreated obstructive sleep apnea are four times more likely to have heart failure, and 90 percent of all stroke victims have obstructive sleep apnea. It will also increase depression by 40 percent, and you’re seven times more likely to have an auto accident. So treating a sleep/breathing disorder will certainly enhance the quality of your life and may just save it.
