Sleep apnea can cause breathing to stop and start at night. It is a potentially serious condition that’s closely linked with PCOS.
Weight loss can improve sleep apnea, which may cause heart damage if neglected over time. But you need to know the causes and symptoms before you can fight back against this disorder.
You may have sleep apnea if you snore loudly and you feel tired even after a full night’s sleep. The condition occurs in two main types:
obstructive sleep apnea – the more common form that results from throat muscles relaxation
central sleep apnea – the variation that occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing.
Additionally, some people have complex sleep apnea, which is a combination of both.
More on this disorder later in the week. If you think you might have sleep apnea, see your doctor. Treatment is necessary to avoid heart problems and other complications.
