When you think about actions you should take to address high blood pressure, you may focus on exercise, better dieting, and stress management as opportunities for improvement. These can be beneficial, but you should know that you may be overlooking a surprising reason your blood pressure has become more difficult to manage. This condition can actually be affected by sleep apnea, as your restricted breathing can trigger an increase in pressure over time. High blood pressure is one of many problems that sleep apnea can potentially create for you. At our Livonia, MI clinic, we have experience identifying and treating cases of sleep apnea. As part of our support, we can determine what kind of appliance is best suited to helping you manage your troubles. (more…)
You hear all the time that sleep is important. You know, of course, from personal experience that getting sleep is nicer than not getting sleep. However, when you deal with a sleep disorder like serious snoring or sleep apnea for quite a while, it can be easy to slowly acclimate to this sleep-deprived lifestyle, as you try to deal with the side effects and lose sight of just how many ways sleep benefits you! In addition to protecting your health, our Livonia, MI team would love to cover some additional ways sleep is the best (so you may feel motivated to come in to treat it sooner than later!).
You’ve heard sayings about sleep before. You may not even realize that you know them! However, as we begin to list a few off, you’ll quickly realize that they’re very familiar. While such phrases are often used in jest, our Livonia, MI team would like to quickly present them as reminders of why it’s just so important to take care of your nightly rest and to seek snoring and sleep apnea treatment with us, when it becomes necessary!
We know that when you learn about the fact that you have sleep apnea disorder, it can at first feel like a huge relief! However, as the veil is lifted and you begin learning more about what’s going on with your body as this sleep disorder impacts you on a nightly basis, you may feel somewhat shocked by what’s been going on. For instance, when we inform you that part of the event includes choking, you may ask us: Is this actually happening to you? Also: What in the world can I do about it and how quickly? Our Livonia, MI team is happy to share with you that while the details are certainly surprising, we can help you immediately with effective sleep apnea treatment! As for that clearer understanding you were hoping for…
When your sleep is the focus of your concerns because one way or another, it’s becoming obvious that you’re not getting enough of it, you may not want to consider a sleep disorder. You may instead wish to rationalize what’s going on, in hopes that the issue goes away, you feel well rested again, and that’s the end of it. While we understand this, our Livonia, MI team also reminds you that such disorders are treatable and with noninvasive, simple care! So, before you try to wish an issue away, start by asking yourself some additional questions. If it seems like sleep apnea treatment might be something that could help, come in!
Your sleep apnea treatment is amazing! You’re extremely excited about it, ready for it to do its thing, happy to be able to wave goodbye to the uncomfortable symptoms of interrupted sleep, and more! However, there’s just one problem: You can’t seem to remember to actually wear your treatment every night, which means you’re not sleeping every night. This doesn’t exactly bode well for truly improved sleep and protection for your well being. What to do, you wonder? Of course, our Livonia, MI team is familiar with this issue and we are more than happy to help with simple (yet often overlooked) suggestions!
Feeling a bit stubborn? Truly assuming that sleep apnea isn’t something you need to worry about?

I don’t need that much sleep!” then our Livonia, MI team has some responses for you! We understand feeling resistant to treatment for an issue you don’t really know much about, which is why we strongly suggest you learn more by coming in to see us. We also suggest you take your sleep disorder very seriously because it’s just that … serious. Allow us to explain (and for more information about your needs, come in to see our friendly team soon!).
