Topic for August 28 discussion: Obstructive sleep apnea


Many people with diabetes suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a sleep disorder where your breathing suddenly stops and starts. Common signs of OSA is snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, insomnia, irritability, or seen gasping for air.

OSA and diabetes are known risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Untreated sleep apnea can increase your risk of stroke, heart attack, and work-related or driving accidents. Screening for and treatment of OSA can significantly improve your quality of life and blood pressure control.

Join Steve Ikemiya, DDS, with more than 20 years experience in general dentistry, who specializes in Sleep Apnea therapy as he discusses the systemic ramifications of apnea and its relationship to diabetes and blood sugar control.
