It is important that our patients understand when they are at an increased risk for sleep apnea because of certain health conditions they might have. There are two conditions that might exacerbate our patients’ sleep apnea: type 2 diabetes and hypertension. 

To help, feel free to share this infographic with your practice to further educate your patients on these two increased risks. It can help them better understand type 2 diabetes and hypertension in relation to sleep apnea.

If you have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or hypertension, it is important to learn more about what treatment options might work if you also suffer from sleep apnea. This can better improve your overall health and well-being. Contact us at Craniofacial Pain & Dental Sleep Center of Georgia today.
