Sleep apnea, a greatly undiagnosed condition, may be the culprit for hastening the onset of heart disease amongst others. The risk of having a vehicle accident is also increased by up to seven times. More than 50% of the estimated 18 million people in America who have sleep apnea are undiagnosed. Symptoms of sleep apnea include breathing cessation during sleep, fatigue during the day and loud snoring. Sleep apnea risk is increased by obesity and enlarged tonsils or adenoids.
