It’s hard to function well during the day if you are not sleeping well at night. Quality sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle. If you do suffer from sleep apnoea, your general quality of life and wellbeing are probably severely compromised.
Improving quality of life
Sleep therapy promises a number of compelling benefits. First and foremost, you will not wake as frequently during the night, so will feel more refreshed and rested in the morning. In general, daytime sleepiness will be reduced or even eliminated. If you previously snored, that will be reduced or possibly eliminated. Successful therapy also puts an end to morning headaches. And you will notice a general improvement in your memory, ability to concentrate and mood in general.
Sleep apnoea comes with a number of health risks, including a greater likelihood of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, weight gain, obesity and depression. Sufferers are also more likely to cause road traffic accidents. In addition to the benefits outlined above, sleep therapy greatly reduces your exposure to these risks.
