Benefits of treatment

What are the benefits of treating sleep apnea? When left untreated, sleep apnea can negatively affect your energy levels, productivity and mental well-being. It can also have long-term, adverse effects on your heart, metabolism and overall health. Sleep apnea can affect anyone — fit or overweight, old or young, male or female. It can even affect children. A few of the common symptoms are:

  • Loud snoring
  • Lack of energy
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Morning headaches
  • A partner or family member notices that you stop breathing during sleep

Effective treatment of sleep apnea has been shown to help alleviate these symptoms, which can lead directly to a healthier mental outlook and improved well-being.
