Sleep apnea should not be taken lightly. There are serious side effects and consequences of not seeking treatment right away.
As a matter of fact, sleep apnea sufferers are 3 times more likely to be involved in a vehicle accident than those without the sleep disorder. They also are more susceptible to falling asleep unexpectedly throughout the day, such as while they are driving.
Furthermore, if left untreated, sleep apnea increases risks of:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Other serious health complications
