Sleep apnea is a "powder keg" - from a health perspective

Sleep apnea is associated with numerous secondary diseases, some of which are serious. It is therefore advisable to act early.

Sleep apnea is dangerous to your health - and time is of the essence. Over time, untreated sleep apnea leads to a whole series of secondary diseases, some of which are serious. As always, prevention is better than aftercare - that's why it's important for people with sleep apnea to start therapy as early as possible.

There are four complications associated with untreated sleep apnea:

  1. high blood pressure (hypertension).
  2. Increased risk of heart attacks. 
  3. Increased risk of having a stroke.
  4. Daytime sleepiness and the risk of a dangerous microsleep. Both increase the risk of accidents when driving and at work. 

Important to know: The risk of suffering one of the secondary diseases can only be reduced if the sleep apnea is treated. 

But to do this, sleep apnea must first be recognized, which is unfortunately not the case for many sufferers - most of them do not know anything about their existing risk.
