Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which your breathing stops and starts while you’re asleep, with pauses lasting anywhere from a couple of seconds to more than 20 seconds at a time. When left untreated, it can cause a variety of problems from fatigue to high blood pressure.
Common symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Loud snoring
- Difficulty staying asleep
- Gasping for air while sleeping
- Night sweats
- Frequent urination at night
Research shows that testosterone levels rise while you’re asleep and fall while you’re awake. Men with sleep disorders get less sleep than the average person, which can lead to low testosterone. Low T can cause erectile dysfunction, fatigue, depression, hair loss, increased body fat and more. To put it simply, when you get better sleep, you have healthier testosterone levels. You also reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure and other complications.
When your body gets the rest it needs, you wake up feeling refreshed and energized. Are you ready to get better sleep at night and improve your quality of life? Take our quiz to see if you could benefit from an at-home sleep study.
