The title of a little blurb by Susan T. Lennon in the USA Weekend supplement to our paper last week caught my eye. The researchers also added that treating the apnea improved the blood pressure. Lennon has got it wrong in the title, however. Granted, the stress of lower oxygen from the apnea could maybe contribute to elevating the blood pressure, but a more reasonable explanation is that the snoring and the blood pressure are caused by the same thing. Sleep apnea is a potentially lethal condition in which the sufferer quits breathing for sustained periods during sleep. In most instances, the periods of apnea lack of breathing are interrupted by loud snoring and often thrashing about. Sometimes, however, the lack of oxygen during the stretches of apnea trigger heart rhythm disturbances that can prove fatal. For this reason, identifying and treating sleep apnea is of critical importance. To learn more about it, click here. Anyone who snores loudly, thrashes about when sleeping, particularly if overweight, should be examined with sleep studies for apnea.
A type of blindness called stupidity. Interstingly, ketogenic sleep apnea and high diet pressure are components of the metabolic syndrome—i. Case presentation In Januarya year-old Japanese man was referred to apnea clinic owing to obesity, daytime sleepiness, and snoring sleep sleep.
Slsep did some research into this and found that a lot of other people also reported the same thing. Myself it looks like the bags are slowly going away. With better diet, do ketogenic sleep less? Alaska Sleep Education Sleep. Attal P, Chanson P. That apnea eliminates snoring. A modified, high-protein version of keto adjusts the fat-protein ratio: 60 percent fat, 35 percent protein, and 5 percent carbs.
Do you sleep for a reasonable amount of time but still wake up exhausted the next morning? Are you infamous for your earth-shaking snores? Most commonly, this is because their airway physically closes this type is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea. In any case, when the airway closes and breathing temporarily stops, the body wakes up just for a second, so the person can consciously breathe again and fall back to sleep. In this study, researchers looked at patients with symptoms of sleep apnea e. In normal-weight patients, apnea was more likely to be milder. This review goes through all the evidence on sleep apnea and metabolic syndrome. Sleep apnea is also associated with more visceral fat fat around the organs, which is much more dangerous than subcutaneous fat fat just under the skin. Typical therapies for sleep apnea include appliances that can physically keep the airway open or a CPAP Continuous Positive Airway Pressure device, which pushes air continually through the airway, preventing it from closing. But there are also diet and lifestyle changes that can help in addition to the machines.
