Sleep Apnea Death Risks

A wonderful article over at WebMD discusses hightened risks of car wrecks, diabetes, heart attack, and pregnancy complications due to sleep apnea.

Some quick highlights:

  • Alan Mulgrew, MD, and colleagues at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver compared the claims and accident records of 800 patients with confirmed sleep apnea with those of 800 people who did not have sleep apnea. Over the three years before their diagnosis, the sleep apnea patients were nearly five times more likely to have serious car crashes than were other drivers.
  • To see whether the diabetes and sleep apnea were related, researchers kept track of nearly 600 sleep apnea patients for up to six years. Compared with similar men without sleep apnea, the patients were more than two-and-a-half times more likely to develop diabetes.
  • Women with sleep apnea were twice as likely as other women to have gestational diabetes.
  • Women with sleep apnea were four times more likely than other women to have pregnancy-induced high blood pressure.
