Diabetics Face Sleep Apnea More

Healthy Day reported on July 30, 2007 about a National Sleep Foundation study that showed that 36 percent of type 2 diabetics suffer from sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea occurs when impaired breathing due to collapsed airways triggers multiple nighttime awakenings. the report found that men, particularly those over the age of 62, were more than twice as likely as women to experience interrupted sleep.

The researchers recommend that clinicians screen patients with type 2 diabetes for obstructive sleep apnea.

The report said The National Sleep Foundation estimates that more than 18 million people suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, although the majority of people have not been diagnosed with the disorder. Obstructive sleep apnea is related to a multitude of health risks, including heart disease, high blood pressure, depression, sexual dysfunction and an increased risk of car accidents.
