What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea, otherwise known as OSA is a condition in which a person stops breathing repeatedly during sleep. When a person’s airway collapses, it prevents air from getting into the lungs. Those who suffer from OSA are typically sleepy or fatigued throughout the day.

Causes of a collapsed airway:

  • Extra tissue in the back of the airway
  • Large tonsils
  • Decrease in the tone of muscles that hold the airway open
  • Tongue rolls back, causing a closed off airway

Signs and Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

  • Restlessness during sleep
  • Snoring
  • Dry mouth
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Night sweats
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Gasping for air suddenly during sleep
  • Headaches

CPAP Therapy for Sleep Apnea

At A Turning Leaf Home Medical, our goal is to assist you in getting the rest you deserve. By treating your OSA with CPAP Therapy, your sleep-related breathing will improve, resulting in an improved glycemic control.

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes and sleep apnea, CPAP Therapy can even improve your insulin responsiveness and can rapidly improve insulin sensitivity in OSA patients.
