Impact of Sleep Apnea Treatment

Good sleep is not just an antidote to stress and tiredness, it also keeps our body free of various ailments. Reason why treating this serious sleep disorder can help you in many ways. It is of utmost importance to move towards the correct treatment of Sleep Apnea after you are diagnosed with it. Clinical Studies suggest that CPAP treatment can reduce hospitalization especially in case of patients with cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. Effective treatment can help reduce cardiovascular risk and it can also result in better control or resolution of hypertension in some cases. Treating Sleep Apnea may have positive effects on diabetes control too.

Ease Hypertension

Ease Hypertension

The CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) treatment helps patients suffering from hypertension in reducing it as this treatment addresses breathing problems during sleep that can raise blood pressure. Studies suggest patients with untreated Sleep Apnea are 2.5 times more likely to suffer a fatal cardiovascular event compared to those who have been effectively treated with the CPAP therapy.

Better Functioning of Heart

Better Functioning of Heart

Treating sleep apnea might lead to more than a better night's sleep, relieving the strain off the heart.

People suffering from Sleep Apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep. These pauses cause changes in the pressure on the heart and in blood oxygen levels too. If you have Sleep Apnea, your risk of sudden death increases almost twofold, particularly if you stopped breathing more than 20 times per hour of sleep.* By reducing the enormous strain on your heart, this can also reduce your chances of falling prey to congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease and irregular heartbeat.

Control Diabetes

Control Diabetes

Studies claim that 40%* of people with Sleep Apnea suffer from diabetes. Sleep Apnea can give birth to a lot of diabetic complications and heart problems. Therefore, it’s imperative for diabetics to take it seriously. Treatment of Sleep Apnea improves the symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes. Using CPAP treatment can reduce insulin sensitivity and glucose intolerance in diabetics as it improves alertness and motivation, leading to more stable blood glucose levels.

Reduce the Risk of a Stroke

Reduce the Risk of a Stroke

Repetitive drops in oxygen levels during the night in patients suffering from Sleep Apnea, which places stress on the heart and brain, can lead to stroke. Studies prove that people with untreated Sleep Apnea are two to four times more likely to have a stroke**. Treating it can help your heart function better and control your blood pressure too. Hence possibly reducing your chances to suffer from sudden stroke.
