According to the United Health Foundation, The Burden of Diabetes in Missouri is on the Rise, Affecting Over Ten Percent of Residents
Date:10/24/2013

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 24, 2013

According to the United Health Foundation, diabetes is an increasing public health problem in Missouri, ranking the state 33rd in the nation, with over 10 percent of adults diagnosed with diabetes . The foundation states type 2 diabetes accounts for nearly 95 percent of diagnosed diabetics, which is also the most common type of diabetes in Obstructive Sleep Apnea patients. Dental Sleep Medicine education company, Sleep Group Solutions offers continuing education lectures on the topic, to teach dentists how to screen and treat for snoring and sleep apnea, and discuss the risk factors involved. The St. Louis Missouri lecture will be on November 8-9th at the Embassy Suites in Downtown St. Louis, dentists and hygienists are encourage to attend.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common and frequently unrecognized disorder. It is often found in patients with obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, and there is growing evidence that sleep apnea is independently associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity. Dentists around the world are being trained on how to treat these patients, and commonly using oral devices, which keep the airway open, to allow oxygen in. Dentist, and Sleep Apnea expert, Dr. Jeffrey Horowitz, will be teaching his fellow dentists in St. Louis next month on implementing a proper sleep protocol. “Healthy sleep is essential for a healthy life. Quality sleep increases energy and promotes lower blood glucose levels, very important for the diabetic patient,” says Dr. Horowitz. Diabetes is just one example of a serious risk factor associated with OSA.
