Snoring and Sleep Apnea

A lot of people snore, and snoring itself may not lead to poor quality sleep—though it can be very disturbing to a bed partner. But sometimes, snoring may be a symptom of a serious sleep disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA.

OSA is sometimes referred to as an unrecognized disorder, because it affects more than 20 million Americans, but goes unrecognized and untreated in nine out of ten cases. When left untreated, OSA can not only cause poor sleep and interfere with ones overall quality of life, it can also cause or contribute to a whole range of health problems.

Fortunately, OSA is a condition that can be treated with a high degree of success. There are a number of proven treatment options available that do not require pills or procedures, and millions have found relief.

If you or someone you know is prone to loud, irregular snoring, or is often drowsy or distracted throughout the day, it might be OSA.

We invite you to spend a few minutes on these pages learning about this sleep apnea condition, and the steps you can take to overcome this condition and enjoy good sleep and good health.
