(Best Syndication News) Sleep apnea is a huge problem for many Americans. Besides daytime sleepiness, there is an increased risk of high blood pressure and stroke. Recent research suggests that treating sleep apnea may prevent heart failure and other problems.

There are two basic types of sleep apnea. Snoring is the common warning sign for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The snore occurs because the throat and tongue relax during sleep causing the airway to constrict and vibrate. The second type, which is less common, is called Central Sleep Apnea (CSA). This occurs because the body forgets to breathe while asleep.

To most of us, talking about hormones means estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. True enough, they’re hormones, and we all have all of them. Men, women and children have them, in different proportions of course, but none of us can make it without all three working together.

But these three aren’t even half the hormone story, just a small part of the endocrine system–the system that keeps life’s wheels turning. And every part of it creates hormones.

Our thyroid glands produce the thyroid hormone that controls our metabolism. If the thyroid gland goes south, oh my dear, do you ever know it! You don’t know when or how the truck hit you, but you’re persuaded beyond a reasonable doubt that’s what happened.

(Best Syndication News) New research links sleep apnea to heart arrhythmias that can cause sudden death from cardiac arrest. The sleep disorder can lead to ventricular arrhythmias which are more dangerous than atrial arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation and flutter. The ventricles are the lower chambers and they are associated with sudden death.

Sleep apnea is a common problem that can be diagnosed with a sleep study. Most people are not aware they have the problem but their partners may be. Symptoms include daytime sleepiness and nighttime snoring. The sleeper may be unaware that he (or sometimes she) has stopped breathing momentarily throughout the night.

(Best Syndication News) There is one sure-fire way to stop snoring. Typically the sound caused during sleep is due to a relaxation in the nose or throat. The problem could be a sign of a more serious problem like obstructive sleep apnea. It has been estimated that between 30 and 50 percent of people snore, depending on the country.

A sleep study can diagnose the problem and determine whether a Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP) machine is needed. This will open the airways and stop the snoring in nearly all instances.
