SLEEP APNEA – What Happens if I do nothing?

Do you snore? Is your snoring affecting your relationship? Do you avoid golf trips or shopping trips with your buddies because your snoring is embarrassing?

Snoring is often associated with obstructive sleep apnea, and did you know that untreated sleep apnea can take 5 to 7 years off your life? The effects of sleep apnea can be severe and include high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and pregnancy complications.

Snoring and sleep apnea not only have social implications but left undiagnosed and untreated can have serious consequences.
