For most people, spring is a welcomed change of seasons.
You’ve been suffering from a bit of cabin fever due to the harsh, cold winter weather.
So at the first sign of spring, people tend to throw on the tennis shoes and head outside for the sun.
This isn’t the case, however, for anyone who feels like they’ve been robbed of the benefits of a long hibernation.
You’re still sluggish. You’d rather stay in bed all weekend to catch up on the sleep you just can’t seem to get through the week.
It could be because you’re suffering from sleep apnea, a disturbance of your breathing that interrupts your rest and leaves you in a zombie-like state day after day.
Today, our team at Weddell Dental wants you to feel rejuvenated this spring with sleep apnea treatment in our Bloomington, MN dental office.
Sleep Deprivation Disasters
When you aren’t getting enough sleep, your body is extremely vulnerable to all sorts of health problems.
That’s why it’s vitally important to come to our Bloomington, MN dental office so Dr. Weddell can give you a proper diagnosis and treatment for your sleep disturbances.
In the meantime, here are three common risks that sleep deprivation can pose:
*Problems With Weight*
Along with common signs of sleep apnea, such as persistent loud snoring and exhaustion, you might notice weight gain along the way.
Sleep deprivation reduces your body’s leptin production, which is an essential hormone that signals your brain that you’ve had enough to eat.
Treating sleep apnea will give you the rest your body needs so you can keep producing leptin and also feel energized enough to stay active each day.
A tired immune system means your body can’t fight off even minor threats effectively. This is especially risky when you consider this year’s deadly flu epidemic.
To keep your immune system strong and on high alert for possible cold, flu, and other illnesses, you need to get plenty of rest.
You can also consider adding immunity-boosting foods into your daily diet and natural supplements to protect yourself.
*Systemic Problems Overall*
Your body needs adequate sleep so that each day, all your systems are functioning at top performance.
When your body is literally exhausted, you’re at risk for wide, systemic health problems like:
-Irritability & Depression
-Inability To Focus
-Lack Of Energy
