As a passionate dental practitioner, Dr. Suway is dedicated to providing effective and affordable relief to his patients.
Sleep apnea affects millions of Americans, many of whom have not received an official diagnosis. One of the major issues with identifying sleep apnea as a condition is that symptoms occur when the sufferer is sleeping. Without a witness, the condition may go undetected for a lifetime.
It is more often the case that a light sleeping partner, spouse or family member will identify potential symptoms. Sufferers are likely to stop breathing for up to 30 seconds, choke or gasp for breath and feel tired after what feels like a full night’s sleep.
Comorbidities Associated with Sleep Apnea
Part of Dr. Suway’s passion for diagnosing and treating sleep apnea revolves around potential comorbidities associated with the condition. From diabetes to heart disease, sufferers can be at risk of associated health problems that could significantly impact their general well-being. In some cases, comorbidities are life-threatening and require separate treatment solutions.
Treatments such as oral appliance therapy can reduce or eliminate the symptoms of sleep apnea. As well as breathing easier at night, patients may benefit from better overall health. Dr. Suway works closely with his patients to create treatment plans that take other factors such as medical history, genetics, diet and lifestyle into consideration.
Call the Atlanta Sleep Apnea Treatment Center if you are concerned about the impact of the disorder on your health. You may need to consult with other relevant specialists if symptoms indicate the presence of one or more comorbidities.
