Exclaimation 
Today in my doctor's office I saw this chart!

Assuming that the percentages in this chart are reflect untreated apnea effects, I'd like to know how do these same look for the patients with treated apnea (AHI 5 or less)
Everything I post on this board is nothing more than an opinion expressed by an apneak. Normally, it's based on facts and experience but sometimes, I may get things wrong or not have all the facts.
I reserve the right to change my mind. Why? Because tomorrow I may know better.

I was thinking about writing a post on the benefits of treatment where I reference the medical paper that shows that benefit.

Another "round tuit" for my free time? Too-funny

I am certain some of this should go into the Wiki. Coffee

As far as I can see there is no mention of epilepsy which I find interesting, was it just coincidence that tests made post alleged epileptic fit indicated apnea, or is it a case of chicken and egg?

I really do wonder if the quacks know anything at all, or just bulldirt you with anything you are likely to believe.

I will go with the Mood Disturbance, Mrs. reckons I have had that for the past 30 years.

That's an excellent chart, even if I did feel my blood pressure going up while I was reading it. Scary!

I was wondering about the possible source for the "1 in 5 Americans have OSA". That seems like a really high percentage.

Johns-Hopkins has also, recently, linked sleep apnea with Alzheimer's. They're not sure of the mechanism yet, but one theory is that since we do most of our healing & cleansing during sleep, that those of us with disrupted sleep aren't doing as good a job of clearing out the protein buildups in the brain which can become beta-amyloid plaques.
