Benefits of Sleep Apnea Treatment

Do you snore like a freight train? Wake up in the night, over and over, glancing at the alarm clock and going “3:15 am, 3:24 am, 4:31 am…” all night long? Do you wake feeling exhausted? Find you have to nap during the day to even stay functional? If you are answering “Yes” to any of these questions, then you may need to know about the benefits of sleep apnea treatment.

Sleep apnea is quite simply any disruption in the normal pattern of sleep that you should be enjoying. Fortunately, there are treatments available.

One such treatment is CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure. The benefits of this sleep apnea treatment are primarily that as soon as you begin the therapy you will feel more rested, and you will also stop snoring. This makes life considerably easier not just for you, but for anyone who shares your bed, and even for people who occupy adjacent rooms and still hear you snoring.

Another factor that is very important when it comes to considering the benefits of sleep apnea treatment using CPAP is that it slows the progression of heart disease, which is often a side effect of sleep apnea. You will also have less risk of stroke.

Let’s face it, no one wants to consider the possibility of going to sleep and not waking up. Sleep apnea can result in an increased risk of cardiovascular events, which can be fatal. So if you think you have sleep apnea, you should seek treatment without delay.

Also among the benefits of sleep apnea treatment is that it can help diabetic patients. Studies have proven that within just two days of treatment, insulin sensitivity is improved.

Of course, as is the case with all medical treatments, CPAP is only effective if you adhere to it. You will need to use your CPAP machine for at least four hours every night. It can be difficult getting used to sleeping with the machine, but if you think about the consequence of not using it, you should understand that the discomfort is the least of your worries.
