What are the Health Affects of Sleep Disordered Breathing or Sleep Apnea?

When breathing is impaired or completely stopped briefly due to an obstruction, untreated this can take 12 to 15 years off your life. This is worse than the negative affects of smoking or diabetes. When someone is sleep deprived, their performance in all areas of life goes down. Their performance in school, their behavior and mood, their jaw/cheekbone development, etc.

Driving sleep deprived is more dangerous than both drunk driving as well as texting and driving.
