Previously I mentioned and linked to several of the self-tests that can be done to check the likelihood of having sleep apnea. One of these self-evaluation tests is called STOP-BANG, and you can get it at the Harvard Medical School website.
Some recent studies on obstructive sleep apnea got attention for concluding something fairly obvious — losing weight and reducing fat in the tongue might be the best treatment for OSA.
Earlier in life, relatively healthy people with CMT can overlook signs of compromised respiratory function which will start to cause more and more problems for them later.
Studies show CMT tends to come with Disturbed Sleep, Depression, and Reduced Quality of Life. 😞
This post summarizes the scientific research I've absorbed on the subject of CMT and sleep apnea. It's definitely accurate relative to my own experience in the past year or so.
