“Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA) is a complex medical disease that has reached epidemic status in the USA. It was estimated in 2005 that between 12-18 Million Americans suffer from this disease. Forty percent are not obese, 36% with Type 2 Diabetes have undiagnosed OSA, 63% of these patients with OSA will progress to high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia, stroke and even sudden death, as seen in retired NFL star Reggie White whose death was thought to be due to complications of OSA.” Read more of Sleep Killer by Robert Gadlage M.D., F.A.C.S. in LiveLiving Christian Health and Wellness Magazine.
