Effects of Sleep Apnea

Effects of Sleep Apnea - Rockville Family Dental

Rockville, MD

Untreated sleep apnea can also have more immediate dangerous effects. Patients with sleep apnea frequently experience daytime fatigue and drowsiness, which can lead to falling asleep at times when it may not be appropriate, such as behind the wheel of your car.

If left untreated, sleep apnea can contribute to a number of serious health problems, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Liver problems
  • Heart failure
  • Memory loss
  • Heart disease
