Staying Healthy

People with sleep apnea should follow their doctor’s and respiratory therapist’s recommendations for treating the condition. Losing weight and following instructions on the use of CPAP, if prescribed, can go a long way towards eliminating the problem and its associated risk factors for other diseases, such as hypertension, heart disease, and stroke. While these lifestyle changes are sometimes a challenge, working with your health care providers to find the right solutions is paramount to getting that good nightís sleep your body needs to avoid complications and allow you to perform at your best during the day.
