Dr. Young of Monmouth and Ocean County, NJ Offers Info on Sleep Apnea in Women

Patients in Monmouth and Ocean County, NJ often think that obstructive sleep apnea usually affects men, and particularly middle-aged men who are overweight and sedentary. In fact, sleep apnea is a health issue for women, too, who are often active and physically fit. Like men, women have symptoms that include chronic snoring, gasping or choking while sleeping, lapses in breathing, daytime sleepiness, and more. New studies show that sleep-disordered breathing poses special risks for women and is frequently undiagnosed.

Dr. Young of Shore Dental SleepCare shares an article from Psychology Today about new findings on sleep apnea in women that are disproving the myths, examining the cause, symptoms, and risks of female sleep apnea: Sleep Apnea Affects Women

Dr. Young of Shore Dental SleepCare is Monmouth and Ocean Counties' leading obstructive sleep apnea specialist. If you or a woman you know is experiencing symptoms of breathing problems during sleep and would like information about our sleep clinic, CPAP treatment, or other options, contact our office today
