Reduce your blood pressure by treating your sleep apnea!
New study finds direct link between blood pressure and sleep apnea
A new study has found that treating obstructive sleep apnea can help lower blood pressure. The research followed a group of 221 men who had pre-existing hypertension (high blood pressure)and who were newly diagnosed with sleep apnea.
The study found significant reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels, which means your ‘harmless’ snoring could be causing more than just loud noise!
The facts on sleep apnea…
At Cortés Advanced Dentistry in Manhattan, we know how important sleep is not just to your emotional health, but also your physical health. More than 5% of the American population suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, and sufferers have been known to have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke and an elevated risk of Type 2 diabetes!
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
If you suffer from fatigue, snoring, poor concentration levels and poor productivity, you might be suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea! Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder where the muscles in the back of the throat relax while you sleep, cutting off the airflow to your lungs. This means you are unable to sleep properly and can be woken up hundreds of times a night by your own psychological need for air!
