Have you found it hard or difficult to get a good night’s rest? Do you feel like you are constantly waking up at night? You may be suffering from sleep apnea, which is a sleep disorder characterized by the blockage of air to the chest for breathing while you sleep.

This summer, protect yourself with these sleep apnea tips.

– If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, heart attack, stroke, and even death.
– Genetics play a massive role in many disorders, including sleep apnea.
– Abnormal ailments that can increase your risk for sleep apnea include an enlarged tongue or tonsils, a deviated septum, nasal blockages, a small jaw, and throat obstructions.
– Traditional allergies and sinus problems can also enhance your likelihood of sleep apnea.
– Males over the age of 40 are at a heightened risk of sleep apnea.
