Sleep Apnea Treatment – Sleep Apnea Permanently Destroys One of Your Five Senses
But how about suffering from both conditions, causing you to lose one of your five senses…not temporarily, but permanently?
Diabetes causes macular edema and sometimes blindness. It happens because high blood sugar makes the blood vessel walls in your eyes bulge outwards, causing tiny ruptures from which fluid and blood leak into your retinal tissue, resulting in inflammation and swelling in your retina.
Taiwanese scientists analyzed the information of all patients who had been diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy over an 8-year period at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan.
While 45.5 percent of diabetics without macular edema suffered from sleep apnea an incredible 80.6 percent of diabetics with macular edema did, proving a connection between sleep apnea and macular edema.
The studies implied that not only does high blood sugar cause macular edema; it also results in low blood oxygen levels due to breathing pauses.
Researchers have previously shown that sleep apnea causes damage to blood vessels by promoting inflammation and high blood pressure, which means the small blood vessels in diabetics eyes are also damaged by a variety of other cardiovascular factors.
Macular edema is potentially treatable via laser treatments if caught in time.
Sleep Apnea Treatment – Sleep Apnea? Two more Fatal Consequences
But a study in the new edition of the journal JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery shows a disease caused by sleep apnea. This one is even more serious than any previous ones known.
On the bright side, there is an easy solution for sleep apnea too.
The researchers had access to the medical records of more than 1 million adults from the Korea National Health Insurance Service. From these, they picked 197 sleep apnea sufferers for whom complete records were available. They were all diagnosed between 2004 in 2006.
To match them, they identified 788 people who matched them in age, sex, health conditions, disability, and household income, but who were free from sleep apnea.
This is yet another reason to tackle your sleep apnea as soon as possible.

Sleep Apnea Treatment – Snoring Causes This Deadly Disease
When you snore, you don’t breathe properly, and your blood oxygen level goes down.
And according to a new study, published in the European Respiratory Journal, this can cause the one disease most of us dread the most.
The authors obtained their participants from the European Sleep Apnea Database, which records the medical records of people who have visited 33 medical centers across Europe.
They identified 20,000 adults who had been diagnosed with sleep apnea and had enough information to rank them from the least to the most severe cases.
When analyzing their complete medical records, they found that two percent of their subjects had also had a cancer diagnosis at some time in their lives.
It turned out that sleep apnea severity could predict the prevalence of cancer, especially in women.
Women with the most severe sleep apnea were much more likely to have a cancer diagnosis than women with mild sleep apnea.
This relationship between sleep apnea and cancer was present in men but was much weaker.
Why does this happen?
Most likely because cancer cells don’t function well in an oxygen-rich environment. When you stop breathing due to sleep apnea, or even when your breathing is constricted due to snoring, your blood oxygen level goes down, which then causes snoring.
This is yet another reason why it’s so important to treat snoring and sleep apnea as soon as possible.
