John Young Of Monmouth And Ocean County Explains To His Patients The Negative Effects Of Not Treating Sleep Apnea.

Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers completed a study that concluded untreated sleep apnea can result with a range of conditions associated with diabetes and heart disease. The study found shows increases in blood sugar, stress hormones, fat levels, and blood pressure in patients with obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that affects 20% to 30% of adults.

This recently published study in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, may help to refine the scientific debate over whether sleep apnea is a manifestation of obesity, or in fact an active contributor to associated health problems like heart disease and diabetes.

For patients with a hard time tolerating CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure), researchers recommend working with sleep specialists who can assist with the machine or recommend alternative therapies. As Monmouth and Ocean County’s sleep care experts we can assure you will be treated with the most advance techniques with paired with a personalized experience.
