Obstructive sleep apnea may increase hypertension risks – Study

Washington, May 11 (Prensa Latina) Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may increase the risk of suffering from hypertension, stroke, heart disease and type 2 diabetes, the ERJ Open Research magazine reported Thursday.

OSA patients usually snore loudly, their breathing starts and stops during the night and they may wake up several times by affecting their quality of rest.

The OSA is more frequent in men, in the elderly, people suffering from heart diseases, less physically active, smokers and depressed individuals.

Scientists call for raising awareness of this condition, since once diagnosed, OSA people can be treated to reduce the risk of other serious diseases like stroke, heart disease and diabetes.
