Sleep Apnea May Be Preventing Millions of Americans From Getting the Sleep They Need

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 19, 2009 -- Nearly 20 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, a serious health condition that has been linked to increased risks for obesity and weight gain, heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, asthma and depression. Sleep apnea has also been cited by experts as the number one cause of car accidents. Ninety-five percent of sleep apnea cases go undiagnosed, putting the health of millions of Americans at risk.

How can people determine if they suffer from sleep apnea? There are some simple questions they can ask themselves:

 
  • Do they have a high chance of dozing off when sitting in traffic in their car?
  • What about when sitting reading, or watching TV?
  • Or when they are sitting talking with someone, or sitting inactive in a public place?

If someone answers yes to more than one of these questions, he or she could be suffering from sleep apnea and not know it. The Aviisha Medical Wellness Institute has launched a new website, www.aviisha.com that will help them find out. Once at the site, visitors can take a complete sleep apnea quiz, to learn more about sleep apnea and its possible health affects, and find information on how to treat sleep apnea.
