Sleep apnea is a disorder that obstructs breathing during sleep. Dr. Weisfogel has done a good job by creating awareness on this disorder. However 80% of the people suffering from sleep apnea are not aware of it. This disorder mostly affects people who are overweight. Although the disorder is said to mainly come from overweight issues there are other factors that can cause it. People with genetic issues like enlarged tonsils and chronic nasal conditions are at a higher risk of suffering from sleep apnea.
According to Dr. Avi Weisfogel’s research adults are more susceptible to this disorder than children. The most common symptom is snoring. However sleep apnea patients can suffer from drowsiness, forgetfulness and even severe headaches. This is because the patients sleep is often disturbed as they wake up suddenly in an attempt to get air into their lungs.
