Sleep disorders can be deadly for some people, especially if you are overweight, have high blood pressure, heart disease, and are at risk for stroke. Snoring is a common sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition that affects 18 million Americans. People with sleep apnea actually stop breathing for up to 1 minute, until they wake up and resume breathing. Snoring and sleep apnea can be treated by a sleep medicine specialist. Other conditions a sleep medicine provider treats include insomnia, nightmares, sleepwalking, and narcolepsy. Learn more about sleep in our patient education library.
Seeing a sleep medicine provider is a good idea if you have experienced any symptoms of a sleep disorder, including snoring.
Getting quality, restorative sleep every night is absolutely vital to your wellbeing, so you owe it to yourself to see a sleep specialist and get a diagnosis. You may want to participate in a sleep study, where you can have your sleep patterns monitored and analyzed by a physician trained to identify and treat all kinds of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea.
