Sleep Apnea is a very common and potentially dangerous sleep disorder. Its where your breathing is interrupted repeatedly while you are asleep.
Often when this is left untreated it can contribute to Type 2 Diabetes and increases risk of heart disease. While increasing the likelihood of stroke and heart attacks.
Apnea literally means “no breath” or “stopping breathing”. When you have sleep apnea, air stops flowing to your lungs for 10 seconds or longer – that is, you actually stop breathing.
