Every 4th person snores, and every 5th person has sleep apnea. Both these ailments are the modern age disease. Though the prevalence is high, they are ignored, this despite being the underlying cause for serious comorbidities like hypertension, diabetes, heart ailments, central nervous system ailments. Besides affecting the quality of life, these two reduce the overall life span. In fact, treating sleep apnea at the earliest, right from childhood would make a huge difference to healthy living.
