What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a very common illness. There are two main problems associated with it. The loss of sleep causes you to have diminished brain function. Secondly, when sleep apnea is not treated, it is one of the promoters of heart disease. People who have untreated sleep apnea have much more hypertension, heart attacks, and strokes that are preventable if sleep apnea is taken care of early in life.
