Daytime tiredness, obesity, high blood pressure, headaches, acid reflux, hyperactivity — all these can be signs of one very serious and possibly fatal health condition: Sleep Disordered Breathing.
Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB): labored respiration while asleep. Difficulty breathing at night may stem from constricted nasal passages or an obstructed oral airway.
SDB ranges in severity from snoring (an indication of the onset or existence of an SDB problem) to Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (accompanied by gastroesophageal reflux and asthma) to Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a condition marked by a complete cessation of breathing for 10 seconds or more. This can occur hundreds of times a night without the sufferer’s knowledge.
Sleep Disordered breathing is linked to obesity, Cardiovascular Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, insulin resistance (Diabetes), glucose intolerance (metabolic disorders), sexual dysfunction, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and a host of other problems—and it can be fatal.
