Why seek sleep apnoea treatment?

If you've been diagnosed with sleep apnoea - or think you may have it - why should you seek treatment? To begin with, effective sleep apnoea treatment will reduce and potentially eliminate the negative effects of the condition, such as snoring, drowsiness, lack of energy and impaired driving. Most sleep apnoea patients who successfully undergo treatment experience increased energy4 and a healthier mental attitude - not to mention the satisfaction of consistently getting a good night's rest.

There are more incentives to seek sleep apnoea treatment. Effective therapy can also help alleviate other conditions often associated with sleep apnoea - such as heart disease,1 diabetes2 and obesity3 and even help prevent these conditions from developing. Simply put, effective sleep apnoea treatment can reduce your health risks, improve your daily energy levels and help you feel more like yourself again. By continuing your sleep apnoea treatment regularly, you are making an important decision to take control of your health, your well-being and your life.
