Sleep Apnea Solutions at Knoxville Low T Sleep Center
If you are worried that you may have sleep apnea, Knoxville Low T Sleep Center offers health assessment options that include the use of a simple, convenient home sleep test to determine if you have this condition. Sleep apnea has been implicated in loud snoring, severe headaches, listlessness and fatigue, depression and even in cases of high and cardiovascular issues. People suffering from sleep apnea are being denied oxygen to the heart and brain continually throughout the night. It’s a serious health issue. We can design a Knoxville sleep apnea treatment plan that works with your schedule, your lifestyle and your specific and unique set of needs.
How Sleep Apnea Affects You
It is estimated that around 22 million people have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea causes your breathing to stop repeatedly throughout the night. Your family may have complained about your snoring, or you might wake up several times per night gasping or choking. However, in many cases, people are not aware that their sleep is being disturbed. They simply know that they feel tired all the time no matter how much sleep they get.
Sleep apnea happens because the throat relaxes and blocks your airway or because your brain is not sending the right signals telling your body to breathe. Or both! Fortunately, we offer sleep apnea remedies in Knoxville.
Our Approach to Sleep Apnea Diagnosis and Treatment in Knoxville
Talking to you about your symptoms and doing a health assessment can help us identify whether you might have sleep apnea. We can use a home sleep study in Knoxville to confirm this diagnosis. This is an easy and convenient way for you to take a sleep test without having to spend the night in a Knoxville sleep lab. We’ll give you everything you need for the test, and you can do it in the comfortable environment of your own home. Because you do not have to wait for an appointment for the test, you can get results quickly. Data will be electronically documented while you are sleeping, and our sleep doctor in Knoxville can review it and let you know whether sleep apnea is responsible for your health issues.
We know that the best treatment is a regimen that you can follow because it fits your individual situation. We work with you to make a sleep apnea treatment plan. This could consist of lifestyle changes, including exercise and cutting back on alcohol. It might also involve using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device. We will follow up to make sure the sleep apnea treatment is working for you, and if you are having any issues, we will try to resolve them.
If you think you may have sleep apnea, make an online appointment today with us today at the Knoxville Low T Sleep Center.
