OSA - RELATED DISORDERS

Medical conditions are often related to other diseases or conditions. The same is true of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Below is a list of conditions which may be a cause of OSA or a condition for which you may be at increased risk if you have been diagnosed with OSA. When reviewing it, please keep in mind that managing your OSA can also have a positive impact on underlying medical conditions too.

It’s simple: if you do not sleep well, you cannot be well. Dr. Bailey can assess your potential for OSA and, if warranted, provide effective solutions to help you manage it. In addition to improving the quality of your sleep, the treatment we provide in our office may also increase efficacy of treatment you may be receiving for other OSA-related disorders.

A Special Note to Women:

Studies often suggest that Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is more common in men than women; however, this may not be true. Many researchers now believe the numbers are understated because women with OSA are often misdiagnosed as having one or more of these conditions:

  • Anemia
  • Cardiac or pulmonary illnesses
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Fatigue from overwork
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hypertension
  • Hypochrondria
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Insomnia
  • Menopausal changes
  • Obesity
  • Stroke
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Marfan Syndrome
  • Tonsillitis
  • Obesity

If you are a woman being treated for any of these health problems, and you are not getting the results you and your doctor expect, contact us for a sleep evaluation. We can screen you for OSA and provide treatment, if warranted. In addition to enabling you to experience the benefits of recuperative sleep, it can also improve the efficacy of your treatment for other potentially OSA-related health issues.
