Is Sleep Apnoea Dangerous
The Hidden Dangers Of Sleep Apnoea
Diabetes is another potential danger of this condition. In fact, as many as 80% of those who have diabetes have some version of the condition. The connection is likely obesity since this is common in both conditions. The conditions aren’t necessarily linked perfectly since studies haven’t shown this yet, but there is some reason to believe that it can lead to sleep deprivation and other things that can increase the risk for diabetes.
Gaining weight is another potential thing that increases your health risk if you have the condition. These two conditions basically increase the risk for the other. Apparently more than two-thirds of those who have sleep apnoea are overweight. It’s potentially possible to cure the condition by losing weight, but this can often be rare. The reason for the connection is partially because deposits of fat in the neck can obstruct breathing at night. Some people think that sleep apnea leads to being overweight because of how the condition blocks your ability to process certain hormones at night which can lead to junk food cravings, which leads to being even more overweight.
