Sleep apnea is a very common condition that if left untreated, can cause anything from depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, heart attack
. It’s estimated that up to 1/4 of all men and 1/10 of all women
may have at least some degree of sleep apnea. The frightening statistic is that about 90% of women with sleep apnea are not diagnosed. Instead they are being treated for the complications of untreated sleep apnea, rather than the cause itself.
